During the last 4 years ChemStream participated in the LORCENIS project sponsored by the European Commission under Horizon 2020.
During this project ChemStream developed its own superabsorbent polymers (SAPs) to be used as additives in concrete. Their water-absorbing properties ensure that the concrete has a longer lifespan by providing an improved internal water balance and the possibility to self-heal and self-seal the concrete when cracks occur.
Recently the Innovation Radar of the European Commission put this development on the map of the 'Business Ready' Innovations in Europe. Read it via the following link.
