Limestone calcined clay cement as a low-carbon solution

2017-1-1  1. Introduction. Concrete production has an impact on the climate as it accounts for 5–8% of total anthropogenic CO 2 emissions . 95% of this CO 2 is produced during the fabrication of cement, half of it being released by the decarbonation of the limestone during cement fabrication. Cement is, after power generation, the second largest source of anthropogenic CO 2 emissions , and also the ...

Calcined clay limestone cements (LC3) - ScienceDirect

2018-12-1  Clays containing about 40% kaolin or above give strengths comparable to plain Portland cement when used in LC 3-50 (50% clinker, 30% calcined clay, 15% limestone and 5% gypsum). Such clays are widely distributed and, as clay is often one of the raw materials for cement production, may even be available in existing quarries of cement plants.

2020-6-9  Abstract. Cement production is currently the largest single industrial emitter of CO 2, accounting for ∼8% (2.8 Gtons/y) of global CO 2 emissions. We show that the solid Ca(OH) 2 product readily decomposes and reacts with SiO 2 to form alite, the majority cementitious phase in Portland cement. Electrochemical calcination produces concentrated gas streams from which CO 2 may be
