Monday March 13 M2i arranged a fruitful roadmap session with participants of ‘MVO Netwerk Beton’ (CSR Network Concrete), technical universities and TNO. After a presentation on the challenges in the concrete industry by Mark Spetter (MVO Nederland) and a presentation on the key issues in R&D by Mario de Rooij (TNO), the participants drafted three roadmaps.
The three topics of the day were:
≡ Separation Technology in the supply chain,
≡ Upgrading – making materials Reactive, i.e. bottom ashes of AEC and geopolymers
≡ modeling performance and accelerated testing.

After some discussions, we’ve collected many goals, processes, research questions and necessary conditions with the aim to reach a CO2 saving of around 30% in 2030 through the whole chain. At the end of the session many participants showed their interest in developing research questions into concrete projects.

If you want to participate in future roadmap sessions on this topic, please contact Program Manager Jan Zuidema.
