LC3 Day Portugal

May 28 @ 8 h 00 min - 17 h 00 min

Leading experts in academia and industry will present the latest developments of cements containing calcined clays and limestone (LC3), with emphasis on the environmental and economic impact of the new material.

The program will look closely at the Portuguese, European and West African markets and pinpoint opportunities for use of calcined clays to rapidly decarbonise the sector. You will hear from LC3 Project experts, “early adopters” – companies already producing LC3 at industrial levels across the world – as well as equipment and admixture suppliers with first-hand experience using LC3.

Register today and be part of the conversation of low-carbon cement LC3!
