  • Unique collection of information from the leading academic and commercial practitioners in alkali-activated materials
  • Insight into materials chemistry and its role in durability, commercialisation and standardisation
  • Historical context and forward-looking perspectives highlighting the role of alkali-activated materials in the construction industry
This is a State of the Art Report resulting from the work of RILEM Technical Committee 224-AAM in the period 2007-2013. The Report summarises research to date in the area of alkali-activated binders and concretes, with a particular focus on the following areas: binder design and characterisation, durability testing, commercialisation, standardisation, and providing a historical context for this rapidly-growing research field.
