Science and Innovation. LC3 Cement Project, team work experience


Connecting, by Alfredo MARTIRENA


Recently we are started a series of short communications where we introduce to you the collaborative work of the international team supporting the development and further dissemination of LC3-projectLow Carbon Cement. The main topics of these communication will be:

Science & Innovation:

How we complete the loop of innovation. More than 10 years of collaboration and team effort taking science from the lab to real life projects. This will be presented by Prof. Fernando Martirena, head of  LC3 Technology Resource Centre in Latin America and with the collaboration of LC3-Project Director, Prof. Karen Scrivener, from The École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL).

Why kaolinitic clays?

With the contribution of Dr. Adrian Alujas, from the Centro de Estudios de Química Aplicada (CEQA) de la Universidad Central de Las Villas (UCLV) we will be talking about kaolinitic clays and the three main arguments about it use as pozzolans in LC3 cement formulation.
