10 March 2020, Published under Cement News

While Portland cement is expected to remain the most-used cement type in concrete production, alternative cements are gaining importance. This has seen the continued development of alternative clinkers, such as belite-based low-carbon clinkers with a belite content of more than 40 per cent, in China over the last two decades.

Alternative clinkers

11 March 2019, Published under Cement News

The drive to lower the carbon footprint of cement has led to the development of alternative cement clinkers to replace Portland cement clinker. Arthur Harrisson examines the potential of carbon reduction in four alternative clinker types, as proposed by Gartner and Sui. Belite in clinker Some years ago in ICR the possibilities for using alternatives to Portland cement clinker were discussed. 1 The particular cements examined were calcium aluminate cement (CAC), calcium sulphoal...
