MCure

Development and demonstration of accelerated low energy curing in the repair and refurbishment of concrete structures

The MCure project derives from a completely different industry. The European construction sector is facing the challenge of tackling and durably repairing damage to concrete structures that has arisen over many years. In this project, a new energy-efficient system will be developed to improve and accelerate hardening of the repaired concrete patches during renovation – and thus save costs.
