EuLA organised, on Thursday 30 June 2016 in Padua (Italy) its 6th Science-industry Roundtable on the use of lime in mortars. This roundtable took place right after the 16th IBMAC conference.
Following the 2014 edition of this roundtable, this year edition will focused on the following topics:
- Contributions of lime containing mortars for construction in seismic zones: The aim of this session was to discuss how the lime characteristics can provide an added value to construction in seismic zones. This morning session focused on the following topics: seismic activity, differential setting, horizontal loading…
- Lime in the circular economy: research projects & EU funding : The aim of this session was to strengthen the knowledge (including via EU funding) on lime, within the broader debate of the “circular economy”. This session encompassed a larger scope, with topics such as carbonation, recycling, waste, durability, codes/regulation, energy efficiency in buildings, etc.
