This project seeks to appraise the use of three different blended cements, with 25 50% lower carbon footprint than commercial Portland cement, in masonry concrete applications. Carbonation will also be implemented as one of the curing scenarios, for an added potential increase in CO2 offset. Work will be carried out at the laboratory-scale first, and later validated in a real production setting at the partners site. Promising outcomes will help the partner demonstrate the greenest concrete product yet in the market, an opportunity championed by the local cement and construction industries, and well aligned with various provincial and federal initiatives related to emission reduction.
