Mechanism of effluent attack on Portland cement and alkali activated mortars

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


    The alkali activation of waste products has become a widespread topic of research, mainly due to environmental benefits. Portland cement and alkali-activated mortar samples were prepared to compare their resistance to silage effluent which contains lactic acid. The mechanism of attack on each sample has also been investigated.
