Calcined clay limestone cements (LC3)

Cement and Concrete Research Journal, Volume 114 | 01 Dec 2018

The use of supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) to replace part of the clinker in cement is the most successful strategy to reduce CO2 emissions in the global cement industry. However, limited supplies of conventional SCMs make it difficult to take this strategy further unless new types of SCMs become available. The only type of material available in the quantities needed to meet demand is clay containing kaolinite, which can be calcined to produce an effective SCM. This paper looks mainly at results emerging from the LC3 project (www.lc3.ch), which focusses on the most reactive kaolinitic clays.
