Synthetic glass with high alkali-reactivity and near-zero RM- CO2 emissions
May 27-June 1, 2018
As cement-related CO2 emissions increase, alternatives are actively sought. Cement substitution by slag and fly ash is standard practice worldwide and while higher side stream utilization is necessary, their volumes are not adequate to significantly alter global CO2 emissions. Cement substitution by, and alkali activation of, calcined clays offer an alternative with zero raw-material-related CO2 (RM-CO2) emissions.
