Research for low-carbon cement receives funding

The Swiss Agency for Development (SAD) will be funding the EPFL-led consortium for the development of new blend of low-carbon cement.

The research team includes scientists from the Indian Institutes of Technology, as well as universities in Brazil and Cuba. SAD will be contributing CHF4 million for this research on new cement substitute referred to as LC3 (limestone calcined clay clinker cement). The funding will allow researchers to speed up development and testing of LC3. Two industrial-scale pilot trials were already done in India and Cuba. Larger-scale production tests with industrial partners are now being pursued.
