In-Situ Production of Cementitious Material from Martian Resources - FY18

Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

In-Situ Production of Cementitious Material from Martian Resources - FY18
Production of cementitious materials from Martian regolith has not been demonstrated. Production of cements on Earth is energy-intensive and emits greenhouse gases. Ionic liquids will be used in this effort. They do not require much heat, electrolytic hydrolysis requires low voltage, and carbonates are not necessary. Expected spin-off to terrestrial cement manufacturing. More »
