is the result of an innovative limestone and calcined clay technology which allows high clinker replacement in cement.
is based on extensive applied research, which has been developed in recent years at the Cementir Group Research and Quality Centre located in Aalborg, Denmark, covering the entire value chain: from raw material assessment, manufacturing technology, up to concrete technology.
the low carbon benefits of FUTURECEM® are achieved preserving strength and quality and leveraging on the unique synergies of the material combination.
it is a proven innovation: successfully used in concrete applications for building two bridges in Denmark (project “Green Concrete II”).
Why is FUTURECEM<sup>®</sup> more sustainable than ordinary cement?
FUTURECEM® is more sustainable because it:
determines approx. 30% CO2 emission reduction in the manufacturing phase;
enables production of durable concrete with reduced clinker content by exploiting synergies of two largely available materials;
is fully acknowledged as a solution for clinker ratio reduction in the roadmap for “Low Carbon transition in the cement industry” by the International Energy Agency – 2018 and as “low clinker cements” in the “Cementing the European Green Deal”-2020, making Cementir Group the frontrunner;
is also recognized into EN 197-5 European standard for II/C-M cements (See page n°4 of the attached document)
