We have commenced a trial at NSW Ports’ Port Kembla Harbor to validate geopolymer concrete in the marine environment. A small batch of 18-tonne Hanbar units made from high density GPC have been cast and placed on the north breakwater. These units will be monitored for stability and integrity, and will provide a valuable benchmark for future use of geopolymer concrete.
