Dredged sediments used as novel supply of raw material to produce clinker of Portland cement

Abstract : The maintenance of waterways generates large amounts of dredged sediments that are an environmental issue. This paper focuses on the use of fluvial sediment to replace a portion of the raw materials of Portland cement clinker, which would otherwise come from natural resources. The mineralogy of the synthetic cement was characterised using X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy and its reactivity was followed by isothermal calorimetry. Comparisons were made to a commercial ordinary Portland cement (CEM I 52.5). Compressive strength measurements were conducted on cement pastes at 1, 2, 4, 7, 14,28 and 56 days to study strength development. The results showed that Portland cement clinker can be successfully synthesised by using up to 39% sediment. The compressive strengths developed by the cement made from sediment were equivalent to those obtained with the reference at early ages and 20% higher at long term.
