CalPortland® has announced its new line of portland-limestone blended cements, ADVANCEMENTTM. ADVANCEMENT™ uses sustainable materials and renewable technologies. With up to 15% blended limestone by mass, the production of ADVANCEMENT™ generates approximately 10% less CO2 thus reducing the embodied energy per ton of cement compared to ordinary portland cement.
ADVANCEMENT™ is a line of products that can be combined with other concrete carbon reduction technologies to further enhance performance and increasingly reduce the embodied carbon of concrete, the world’s most widely used building product.
“CalPortland continues its commitment to offering sustainable materials and innovative solutions,” said CalPortland President/CEO Allen Hamblen.
“Portland-limestone cements (PLCs) significantly reduce the amount of CO2 emissions produced during the cement manufacturing process without sacrificing performance. The ADVANCEMENT™ line of products is another key solution to helping CalPortland achieve its carbon reduction goals.”
The ADVANCEMENT™ product line includes:
- ADVANCEMENT™ LT (Light): A lighter coloured, higher albedo Type IL portland-limestone cement providing an approximate 10% reduction of CO2 (embodied carbon) compared to common ASTM C150 cements. ADVANCEMENTTM LT is also preferred when aesthetic architectural design and application are required.
- ADVANCEMENT™ HS (High Sulfate): A portland-limestone blended cement manufactured for general use concrete applications and when high sulfate resistance is required. HS reduces the amount of CO2 by approximately 10% while maintaining product performance requirements.
Additional ADVANCEMENT™ products are to be announced soon.
