Comparing Betolar to traditional OPC-based concrete

With geopolymers, industrial side streams make up to 95% of the required raw materials. Therefore, there is no need to mine e.g. limestone and gravel that is necessary in traditional, OPC-based concrete.

The production of geopolymers happens at room temperature and can be done by utilizing existing machinery. In other words, the manufacturing does not require cement production that is not only energy intensive, but the process itself releases significant CO2 emissions.

Betolar’s production process is designed in a way that the manufacturing happens near the source of the waste stream. Geopolymer concrete is also about 20% lighter than traditional concrete. Together, these make the logistic costs of geopolymers significantly smaller than traditional OPC-based concrete, which requires long-distance transportation, all the way from the mining site to the construction site.
