Geopolymer Concrete Protects against Corrosion

We've previously documented that Coal Ash can serve both as a raw material for making Portland-type Cement and as a fine aggregate for that Cement, to make Portland-type Cement Concrete; as seen, for two examples, in our reports of:

United States Patent: 8520210

We've previously reported on a high-value product that can be directly separated from the bulk of Coal Fly Ash; and, then used in a number of productive ways without much, if anything, in the way of chemical treatment or processing.

United States Patent Application: 0130206605

We remind you that, as seen, for three examples, in our reports of:

West Virginia Coal Association | US Navy 2008 CO2 to Synfuel | Research & Development; concerning: "United States Patent 7,420,004 - Producing Synthetic Liquid Hydrocarbon Fuels;  2008; Inventors: Dennis Hardy and Timothy Coffey, VA; Assignee: The USA, as represented by the Secretary of the Navy; Abstract: A process for producing synthetic hydrocarbons that reacts carbon dioxide, obtained from seawater or air, and hydrogen obtained from water, with a catalyst in a chemical process such as reverse water gas shift combined with Fischer Tropsch synthesis. The hydrogen is produced by nuclear reactor electricity, nuclear waste heat conversion, ocean thermal energy conversion, or any other source that is fossil fuel-free, such as wind or wave energy. The process can be either land based or sea based. Claims: A system for producing synthetic hydrocarbons, comprising: (a) a unit for recovering carbon dioxide from seawater, air, or a combination thereof; (b) a unit for producing hydrogen from water; and (c) a Fischer Tropsch synthesis unit wherein ... methanol production is combined with Fischer Tropsch synthesis to produce said hydrocarbons from said carbon dioxide and said hydrogen";

United States Patent Application: 0120048730

We remind you of our many reports concerning the development of what was at one time referred to as "Syntrolysis", that is, the co-electrolysis of Carbon Dioxide, CO2, and Water, H2O, in order to generate a hydrocarbon synthesis gas consisting of Carbon Monoxide, CO, and Hydrogen, H2, along with byproduct Oxygen, O2, by one or two of our United States Department of Energy's western National Laboratories and their contractor, Ceramatec, Inc., of Salt Lake City, Utah.

United States Patent: 8512551

West Virginia University has established a complete and thorough technology for the efficient and practical conversion of our abundant Coal into substitute liquid crude petroleum.
