The various stages of this research project covered a diagnosis of the market and of the technology for the production of fiber glass components, a diagnosis of alternative applications for steel mill clinker, the development of cement from clinker, a study of the cost and the choice of the cement, the durability of the composites and the development of the panels, as well as the dissemination and transfer of technology. The project succeeded in developing a new kind of low alkaline cement, in which clinker is the basic component, which also contains activators and E-type fiberglass. Panels were obtained with an application in the construction of walls, ceilings, floors and partitions. The project is at the stage of passing on the technology to industry, for commercial scale production. The project opens up the possibility of alternative markets for blast furnace clinker and the use of E-type glass fiber. (AU)
