Abstract

Various strategies have been proposed for reducing the CO2 emissions of cement manufacture. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) stated that “Materials substitution, for example the addition of wastes (blast furnace slag, fly ash) and geopolymers to clinker” could be used to reduce global CO2 emissions. Most current research on this area has focused on and geopolymers based on fly ash and GGBS with a view to produce materials with the lowest possible CO2 emissions. Completed studies have not normally included the constraint of the availability of waste materials and geologic mineral precursors and the effect this can have on outcomes.
