Characterization and technical properties of high-performance CSA clinkers

The results presented in this paper are a fundamental part of the research work which has allowed Buzzi Unicem to achieve the product commercialisation of a CSA cement on an industrial scale.

The awareness of the social relevance of the protection of the environment has promoted increased attention in the investigation of innovative and more sustainable construction materials. The research for higher sustainability in the building industry is key to the development of innovative binders, regarding the increased interest in the knowledge and use of supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) in cement, and for the use of alternative fuels during the burning process. The development of an innovative cementitious material requires a great deal of experimental work, testing all aspects...
