(57) Improved cement for concrete is provided having reduced carbon footprint and improved mechanical properties. A limestone-free process of making the clinker provides a 70% reduction of carbon footprint vs. conventional manufacture of Portland cement. Curing the resulting cement in a temperature range from 80 °C to 100 °C advantageously enhances growth of fibrous minerals in the concrete.
