    • Characterization of biomass briquettes from spent coffee grounds and xanthan gum using low pressure and temperature 

      Seco Meneses, Andrés Upna Orcid; Espuelas Zuazu, Sandra Upna Orcid; Marcelino Sádaba, Sara Upna Orcid; Echeverría, Angel María Upna Orcid; Prieto Cobo, Eduardo Upna Orcid (Springer, 2020)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      This paper analyzes the ability of the SCG for briquettes production based on the use of xanthan gum as binder under low-pressure and low-temperature biomass manufacturing conditions. Briquettes were manufactured at room ...
    • Estimated and real durability of unfired clay bricks: Determining factorsand representativeness of the laboratory tests 

      Seco Meneses, Andrés Upna Orcid; Urmeneta, Pablo; Prieto Cobo, Eduardo Upna Orcid; García, Beñat; Miqueléiz Jiménez, Luis (Elsevier, 2016)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      This paper presents an analysis of the representativeness of the main laboratory tests and the real dura-bility of earth-based construction materials. For this study, a natural marl soil, mixed with different per-centages ...
    • Sulfate soils stabilization with magnesium-based binders 

      Seco Meneses, Andrés Upna Orcid; Miqueléiz Jiménez, Luis; Prieto Cobo, Eduardo Upna Orcid; Marcelino Sádaba, Sara Upna Orcid; García, Beñat; Urmeneta, Pablo (Elsevier, 2016)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      Sulfate soils' stabilization is a very interesting subject with technical, economic and environmental implications. The difficulty of their stabilization is due to the fact that the usual stabilizer additives are based ...
    • Sustainable unfired bricks manufacturing from construction anddemolition wastes 

      Seco Meneses, Andrés Upna Orcid; Omer, Joshua; Marcelino Sádaba, Sara Upna Orcid; Espuelas Zuazu, Sandra Upna Orcid; Prieto Cobo, Eduardo Upna Orcid (Elsevier, 2018)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      The management of construction and demolition wastes is a huge challenge for most Governments. Thegreatest component of such wastes is concrete and masonry fragments or remains. Among the most com-mon approaches to ...
