Leading experts in academia and industry will present the latest developments of cements containing calcined clays and limestone (LC3), with emphasis on the environmental and economic impact of the new material. 

The program will look closely at the Portuguese, European and West African markets and pinpoint opportunities for use of calcined clays to rapidly decarbonise the sector. You will hear from LC3 Project experts, ‘early adopters’ – companies already producing LC 3 at industrial levels across the world – as well as equipment and admixture suppliers with first-hand experience using LC3.

what is lc3 CEMENT

LC3 or Limestone Calcined Clay Cement is a family of composite cements containing Portland clinker, calcined clay and limestone. The LC3 technology promises a sustainable growth of economies around the world by reducing up to 40% CO2 emission compared to Ordinary Portland cement at lower investment and production costs.  LC3 uses raw materials and technologies that are already used by the cement industries.  The production process is similar to the way of producing normal cements.  Thus, they provide a practically viable solution to improve sustainability in the cement industry.
