SPR-4823: Systematic Study of Type 1L Cement for Mixture Optimization and Carbon Reduction

Portland limestone (i.e., Type 1L) cement is being used to replace ordinary Portland cement to reduce carbon emissions. The reduction of around 10% of cement clinker and its replacement with limestone powder can greatly reduce the energy consumption by cement production. This project will conduct a comprehensive study on the performance of Type 1L cement provided by various suppliers. It will thoroughly investigate all performance related properties, including but not limited to, fresh properties, air void system, mechanical strength, and durability of the hardened concrete, etc.
