Every day we have opportunities to reduce our carbon footprint—and help create a better world. We believe cement can help do that, too. ECOPlanet™ Cements help reduce the CO2 intensity of our cements—and our stringent quality controls mean they can handle the most demanding infrastructure applications, like highways and bridges.
Products under the ECOPlanet Cements series include NewCem® Slag Cement, MaxCem® Blended Cement and Tercem3000® Blended Cement. Many of these products incorporate supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) and byproducts from other industries that offer sustainable and performance advantages for those who construct buildings of all kinds. Their use as a partial replacement for portland cement not only results in more durable, high-performance concrete but also lowers energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. For every ton of clinker replaced by SCMs, CO2 emissions are reduced by approximately 0.8 ton.
