On January 10, 2018, the Project GEOACTIV entitled "Development of alkaline activated materials from fly ash and alkaline byproducts of the Solvay process for use in construction and civil works" came into force. This project, signed with Solvay Company under the INNOVA 2017 Regional Program, will be developed during one year by the GER Group, with Dra. Ana Andres Payán as Responsible Researcher.

Under a circular economy approach, the project will allow the creation of knowledge in order to obtain alternative materials to traditional ones, evaluating the technological, environmental and ecological properties of the innovative materials. The development of Alkaline Activated Materials-AAM- contributes positively to the reduction of global pollution and increase the growth in sustainable development, because AAM are synthesized at ambient temperature, reducing flue gases, CO2 emissions and energy consumption, while saving natural resources.. This project suppose the continuity of the GER group activities as contribution in the European challenge “Climate Action, Environment, Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials”.
