Swiss, Indian and Cuban researchers have come together to develop limestone calcined clay cement (LC3), which can help reduce the carbon dioxide emissions of cement by almost 30%.

The LC3 is a synergetic hydration of clinker, calcined clay and crushed limestone to achieve the performance required from commercial cements, with clinker factors as low as 0.40. It also costs less than traditional types of cement.
