On the potential use of quarry waste material for CO2 sequestration
•Novel nanomaterials were produced via ball milling (BM) of quarry waste material.•Various morphological and structural modifications occurred after the BM process.•The optimum conditions are 20h of BM with 50wt% ethanol ...
Micro-destructive mapping of the salt crystallization front in limestone
Salt crystallization is widely recognized as one of the most damaging factors affecting stone monuments and buildings. Conservation of structures suffering from weathering due to salt crystallization can be immensely ...
Carbon dioxide storage in olivine basalts: Effect of ball milling process
The goal of this study is to propose a cost-effective method for the optimization of the ex situ carbonation of basaltic rocks. The ball milling process was applied to a sample of olivine basalt from the Troodos ophiolite ...
New evidence of early use of artificial pozzolanic material in mortars
Hydraulic building composites, such as mortars and plasters, produced with artificial pozzolanic materials, became widely popular thanks to the Romans. Reports on earlier uses of such composites can also be found, mainly ...
Water repellent influence on salt crystallisation in masonry
This paper assesses the effectiveness and effects of a water repellent (sodium methylsiliconate in aqueous solution) on crystallisation in stone and brick masonry materials. The salt crystallisation method adopted in this ...
