Circular and climate neutral cement replacement materials Industry (SCM-Force
Research Project , 2021 – 2023

Purpose and goal: This project, aims to enhance application of alternative cementitious materials in the construction supply chain, which not only benefit minimization of the environmental impact assigned to the cement production and use, but also enhances circular economy in the sector through utilization of industrial wastes as well as promoting new markets and business ideas Expected results and effects:
1.Minimization of required cement in construction sector, which in turn will lead to the long-wanted climate-neutral and economic cement and construction industry.
2.Enhanced circular economy and resource efficiency as the materials in focus are all industrial wastes or natural abandoned resources.
3.Enabling a socially/economically and environmentally sustainable construction/cement industry through creation of new markets, business opportunities as wells as occupations.
Approach and implementation: The improvements are aimed in terms of standardization, environmental/economical/social aspects of the market impact along this value chain as well as proper communication ways (common language) of scientific and technical outcomes to the authorities, policy makers and the government.
