Geopolymers Studies in Brazil: A Meta-Analysis and Perspectives

Rodrigo H. Geraldo and Gladis Camarini
Abstract—Geopolymers have stimulated a great interest since it appeared years ago. Many researchers are investigating the structures, characteristics and the formation processes of this promising technology. These materials are a type of binder that in its production sends less carbon dioxide to the atmosphere and requires lower energy consumption when compared to the Ordinary Portland Cement; moreover, it can demonstrate excellent mechanical properties. Brazilian scientific community is also developing researches in this field, and the new policy about the management and disposal of waste, the high growth of the civil construction, among other facts, tends to increase the interest about geopolymers in the country. The aim of this work is to make a meta-analysis of the literature about geopolymers, showing some studies and perspectives about this theme in Brazil.

Index Terms—Geopolymers, geopolymerization, perspectives, research.
