The project submitted to the Horizon Results Platform the following results contributing to sustainable development:
- A conceptual approach to the formulation and characterization of UHDC: the material is able to guarantee the stability of its mechanical performance upon prolonged exposure to aggressive conditions. thanks to the synergy of crystalline self-healing stimulators and functionalizing nano-alumina and nanocellulose additions.
- A tailored innovative durability-based design approach which encompasses into a LCA/LCC/SLCA framework, serviceability/ultimate limit state limit state predictions focused on the time evolution of the structural performance, allowing to quantitatively determine the structure service life.
- A novel structural design and construction concept for infrastructures in geothermal power plants, leading to reduce environmental impact from 11% to 71%, with reference to the 7 EPD indicators, while reducing from 3 to 5 times the consumption of raw materials.
- A novel structural design and construction concept for off-shore wind tower platforms which could contribute to overcome the limitations of current steel solutions, guaranteeing the same structural performance, a longer service life in the off-shore environment and a reduced consumption of raw materials from 3 to 4 times.
