CO2 emission reduction calculators

Fortius has 3 tools available to calculate the reduction or impact on CO2 emissions.

* Reduction of CO2 when using Basilisk , selfhealing concrete, by changing the mix design (lower amount of clincker cement), CO2 Impact Calculator and reducing the shrinkage reinforcement by 25 to 30 % (Steel Reduction Calculator)

* As member of the Concrete Preservation Alliance, we offer the "Environmental Impact Calculator", that calculates the environmental benefits of concrete preservation versus demolition.

Basilisk Selfhealing concrete

Basilisk has a number of unique products that make Self-Healing Concrete possible. The technology is based on micro-organism whose rpoduce is based on micro-organisms that produce limestone, which means that cracks in concrete can be repaired autonomously. In this way, the durability of the concrete is greatly improved. The autonomous repair system is housed in various products that can be used for new construction as well as for existing construction. Currently, a crack of up to 0.8 mm can be repaired, but the development is still ongoing.

cathodic protection for lock : Pierre Vandamme in Zeebrugge with Galvashield XPT

Renotec recently carried out the renovation works on the cellars of the Pierre Vandamme lock bridge, the largest lock in the Zeebrugge port area.
After 30 years, the lock would be fully serviced. Renotec has cleaned and inspected the walls, the injection work, the concrete repairs and a protective layer has been applied to the concrete walls of the lock. These concrete repairs are partly done manually, but largely by spraying. With 108,000 kg of repair mortar, it carried out concrete repairs on an area of ​​600 m². Due to the presence of chlorides and to respond to the ring anode effect, Galvashield XPT-type sacrificial galvanic anodes were mounted on the reinforcement. A number of sacrificial anodes are being monitored to monitor their service life in the coming years. This guarantees a sustainable recovery of the walls of the lock.
