ITA in the KlimaExpo.NRW project video „ECOTRM“
Reinforced concrete consists of a sand-gravel mixture, cement and a steel reinforcement.
As part of the ECOTRM project, the Institut für Textiltechnik of RWTH Aachen University, short ITA, is now researching an alternative to reinforced concrete, a concrete consisting of a climate-friendly binder and basalt fibres. The aim of the project is to develop a building material without cement whose costs and material properties are comparable to those of reinforced concrete. The production of cement in particular causes more CO 2 emissions worldwide than all air traffic.
