Abstract: Alternative binders and hardening reactions are methods to reduce greenhouse gases emissions, energy and water consumption. Waste-based carbon dioxide activated binder represents a potential solution as an environmental friendly construction material. To achieve efficient mechanical properties and optimal mixture design, a preliminary comparison about the effect of compacting pressure and carbonation duration on carbon dioxide activated binders was studied. An electric arc furnace slag from the national steel industry in Portugal and a Portland cement CP-I were used as binders. This work shows the compressive strength development of a slag-based and Portland cement-based binders under different compacting pressures and carbonation durations. Compressive strength present stronger development due higher compacting pressures and longer carbonation duration however, its development ratio was decreasing after two hours under carbon dioxide atmosphere. The carbon dioxide activation has highly dependence on both studied factors, compacting pressure and carbonation duration, which enhance the compressive strength development.
