Published 18 September 2017

In the first of two reports from the recent international symposium, “The Future of Cement” that took place in Paris, we look at the role played by Louis Vicat in the industrialisation of modern cements and the latest developments in terms of materials chemistry and cement manufacturing.

Paris was the host city for “The Future of Cement”, an international symposium, organised by SFIC, ATILH and UNESCO

Held at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris this June, “The Future of Cement” was organised by the French Cement Industry Union (SFIC), the Technical Association of the Hydraulic Binders Industry (ATILH) and the French National Commission for UNESCO. ICR was among the sponsoring partners. With an international audience of almost 450 delegates, the event gave an overview of the most recent developments in cement research and how the industry has developed since its inception in the early 1800s.
