Although the City of Mbuji-Mayi (DR Congo) is rich in limestone and clay deposits, cement and other building materials are still being imported sometimes by plane from Kinshasa, Zambia and Tanzania. A consequence of this situation is low consumption of cement and concrete (less than 1kg per capita) and a lack of modern and sustainable infrastructures. Our study provides a qualitative assessment of all cement raw materials available in the region, including limestone and clay in order to produce hydraulic binder with optimized technical and environmental performances. Chemical and mineralogical characterizations were done using XRF spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction (XRD). Thermal analysis, electron microscopy, and mechanical characterizations are planned to assess the performance of the concrete and mortar manufactured with the binder produced. Finally, the ultimate goal is to produce a local hydraulic binder whose physical and mechanical characteristics are similar to those of Portland cement, but whose production is expected to consume less energy and emit less CO2.

En vue d'une utilisation efficace de matériaux dolomitiques du supergroupe de Mbuji-Mayi (RD Congo), une caractérisation méticuleuse de chaque faciès de matériau s'impose. Cela permettrait une bonne gestion de ressources en définissant pour chaque faciès, des applications optimales et durables. [less ▲]

The exploitation of mineral resources other than building materials was for a long time the main business sector in RD-Congo. Further to the striking degradation of the road infrastructure and various architectural works, it turned out indispensable to investigate the various resources in building materials (abundant in the country), to characterize them in order to indicate the fields of appropriate applications. In this note, we are respectively interested in the carbonated and clayey materials of the regions of Mbuji-Mayi and Kinshasa. And we show the various valuations that meet the criteria of sustainable development. [less ▲]
