Recently construction industry started looking for new construction solutions and materials, which are durable, sustainable and energy efficient. The strict and high-quality requirements for new materials and technologies are constant in solvation of these problems. In present day the sprayed concrete technology is not very popular due to high prices of materials used in this technology. All materials required for sprayed concrete are imported from EU or Norway. In this case shipping cost is usually close to material price, so material competitiveness in the market is drastically reduced. Because there were no studies in Lithuania of sprayed concrete, which was made using local materials, the goals of the project tare to popularize in Lithuania competitive and efficient technology capable solving complex engineering problems, stimulate production of local materials and enable possibility for technology to be improved worldwide. During the project easily processed products with different surfaces and structure for construction elements, hydro-insolation and heat isolation will be produced by varying sprayed concrete components.
