Production of low-energy cements using various industrial wastes

Canbek, Oğulcan
One economical method of lowering the cement related impact of concrete is partial replacement using industrial wastes like fly ash,natural pozzolan,etc. On the one hand its maximum kiln temperature being 150-200°C lower than that required for PC and higher grindability of its clinker make calcium sulfoaluminate(CSA) cements preferable. This study aims to produce CSA cement with partially or completely replace traditional raw materials with some industrial wastes such as fly ash,red mud and desulfogypsum and to investigate the influence of these materials on the mechanical properties of CSA cements.
