The cement industry contributes to ~8% of anthropogenic CO2 emission. The use of supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) has a huge potential to reduce carbon emissions and virgin resource consumption. There is, however, increasing obstacles for this strategy in many regions due to the limited availability of SCM. LC3 is an innovative blended Portland cement that includes addition of metakaolin (calcined kaolinite clay) and limestone. The major innovation in LC3 is to combine the use of abundantly available low‐grade kaolinite clay with a further 15% of limestone, which together have a synergetic effect and reach a similar performance as OPC ‐ CEM I. This lecture will update the state‐of‐the‐art of research and industrialization of LC3 cement globally.
