FUTURECEM® – Low carbon cement

FUTURECEM® road bridge
What is FUTURECEM<sup>®</sup> ?


  • is the result of an innovative limestone and calcined clay technology which allows high clinker replacement in cement.
  • is based on extensive applied research, which has been developed in recent years at the Cementir Group Research and Quality Centre located in Aalborg, Denmark, covering the entire value chain: from raw material assessment, manufacturing technology, up to concrete technology.
  • the low carbon benefits of FUTURECEM® are achieved preserving strength and quality and leveraging on the unique synergies of the material combination. 
  • it is a proven innovation: successfully used in concrete applications for building two bridges in Denmark (project “Green Concrete II”).
Why is FUTURECEM<sup>®</sup> more sustainable than ordinary cement?

FUTURECEM® is more sustainable because it:


  • determines approx. 30% CO2 emission reduction in the manufacturing phase;
  • enables production of durable concrete with reduced clinker content by exploiting synergies of two largely available materials;
  • is fully acknowledged as a solution for clinker ratio reduction in the roadmap for “Low Carbon transition in the cement industry” by the International Energy Agency – 2018 and as “low clinker cements” in the “Cementing the European Green Deal”-2020, making Cementir Group the frontrunner;
  • is also recognized into EN 197-5 European standard for II/C-M cements (See page n°4 of the attached document).
