• Clinkering of calcium sulfoaluminate clinkers: polymorphism of ye'elimite 

      Gomez-de-la-Torre, Maria de los Angeles; García-Aranda, Miguel Ángel; Santacruz-Cruz, Maria Isabel; Cuesta-Garcia, Ana Maria; Zea-Garcia, Jesus D.; [et al.] (2018)
      The manufacture of CSA cements is more environmentally friendly than that of OPC as it releases less CO2. This reduction depends on CSA composition and is due to three factors: i) less emissions from decarbonation in the ...
    • Processing and characterisation of calcium sulphoaluminate ecocements containing Microencapsulated Phase Change Materials 

      Santacruz-Cruz, Maria Isabel; Romero-Espinosa, Andrea; Sanfelix, Susana G.; Cuesta-Garcia, Ana Maria; Gomez-de-la-Torre, Maria de los Angeles; [et al.] (2018-07-17)
      Calcium SulphoAluminate (CSA) cements can be considered as ecocements, since their production releases up to 40% less CO2 than Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) [1]. In addition, Microencapsulated Phase Change Materials (MPCM) ...
    • Synthesis of active Belite-Alite-Ye'elimite clinker (BAY) 

      Zea-Garcia, Jesus D.; García-Aranda, Miguel Ángel; Gomez-de-la-Torre, Maria de los Angeles; Santacruz-Cruz, Maria Isabel (2016-06-29)
      Ordinary Portland cement (OPC) is an environmentally contentious material, as for every ton of OPC produced, on average, 0.97 tons of CO2 are released. Ye'elimite-rich cements are considered as eco-cements because their ...
    • XRD and Cements: from research to control quality 

      Gomez-de-la-Torre, Maria de los Angeles (2017-05-19)
      This keynote lecture was focused on the scientific background of the cement research group at UMA. Mainly all the research focused on the strategies for reducing CO2 emissions in the cement production. Moreover, the knowledge ...
