Municipal solid waste is treated in incineration plants to reduce the volume, the toxicity and the reactivity of the waste. MSWI bottom ash is the residue after the solid incineration. The goal of the project is to explore the possibilities to upgrade the MSWI bottom ash to be used as binder, filler, or aggregate in concrete production, where the alkali activation technology can be applied.
