NTPC Demonstrated the use of fly ash-based Geopolymer Concrete for the Construction of Road

 

Telangana: NTPC Limited, the largest power utility, has taken several initiatives to make the environment clean and green. Team NTPC Ramagundam (Telangana) Project in association with NETRA (NTPC Energy Technology Research Alliance) has demonstrated the use of fly ash based Geopolymer concrete for the construction of the road. The Geopolymer road, constructed inside the Telangana Project, provides an approach to CHP area.
 
A team led by ED-Ramagundam & Telangana Dr P P Kulkarni inspected the construction site and appreciated the team for achieving the target on schedule on 31st July 2019.
 
Being a demonstration project, the team carried out around 300 trials of concrete mixes and 20 trials of process optimization and completed the 500m length of Geopolymer road and thus achieved the MoU target.
 
The cement-free Fly ash based Geopolymer provides opportunities for sustainable construction material for the construction of the road with negligible co2 emission and low water consumption besides paving the way for bulk fly ash utilization. Further, the Geopolymer road will be subjected to and tested for heavy vehicle traffic.
