The use of alkali activated binder systems becomes increasingly important in concrete technology. Besides the ecological aspects, especially the reduction of the CO2 emissions when producing the binders, the improvement of special concrete properties which is achieved by using these binder systems is gaining importance. Alkali activated binders with lower calcium contents are often also called “geopolymers”. The reactions of the geopolymer binder system required for strength formation differ significantly from the reactions already known from the systems based on Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC). Mainly calcium silicate hydrate phases are formed in OPC-based systems, whereas in geopolymer systems, mostly inorganic three-dimensional aluminosilicate networks are formed. In this paper, results of extensive laboratory tests as well as several practical applications of a geopolymer concrete, the Wagners Earth Friendly Concrete (EFC), with a binder system consisting of a ground granulated blast furnace slag, fly ash and custom-made activators and concrete admixtures are presented with respect to the special properties of such systems. Due to their high resistance to chemical attack, geopolymer concretes are particularly suitable for (reinforced) concrete members, which are severely attacked by acid or sulphates, for example sewage pipes or building members with a high sulphate content in the surrounding (ground) water.
