Keywords:Mineral Carbonation, Carbonated fly ash, GFRP Composite, Pin-on disc wear test, Taguchi experimental method, Optimization
Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) has appeared as an efficient approach to alleviate the intimidating effect of the growing concentration of CO2. Recently, Fly-ash (FA), which is an industrial alkali residue and rich in metal oxides, has been proven as one of the potential agents for CCS through mineral carbonation. In this research, an attempt has been made to sequester CO2 by using FA via chemical activation technique and subsequently use this FA after carbonation (Carbonated Fly Ash (CFA)) as filler materials to fabricate a new class of glass fiber reinforced polymer (GFRP) composite. Further, the dry sliding wear properties (Pin-on disc) of these CFA composites are investigated at room temperature according to Taguchi design of experiment and the effect of diverse control factors are deliberated. The ANOVA revealed that the applied normal load and weight% of CFA significantly affect the wear rate of the presently developed CFA composites.
