More than 70% OPC replacement in concrete. Yet delivering the required strength-development profile and crucial workability, yet using a total cement dose of less than 350 kg per cu•m concrete.
Strength and workability, cost effective and price competitive concrete mixes EVERY time! So ask yourself: what's not to like?
Here's a small EMC installation for comparison. These machines are electrical and hence produce no combustion fumes. Just these three machines can avoid over 100,000 tonnes of CO2 every year.
A million-tonne EMC plant avoids about 800,000 tonnes CO2 per year, yet will require about only 2 hectares of land. That's it!
If it's replacing coal, 1 MW of solar avoids 890 tonnes CO2 per year (here). At 1 million tonnes EMCs per year, that means to match an EMC plant's CO2 avoidance, requires ~900 MW in solar capacity.
For the same CO2-abatement effect as a 1 million tonne EMC plant, solar needs 900 to 1,800 hectares land. An EMC plant? 2 hectares!
Are we so blinded and hardened that we can no longer appreciate the cries of humanity? Can there be peace and prosperity if two thirds of the world live under siege and face calamitous threats?
It has sometimes been observed that what leaders do for their people today is government and politics. But what they do for the people of tomorrow: that is statesmanship.
There’s no more time to hang back or sit on the fence or argue amongst ourselves. This is a challenge of our collective lifetimes ... and every day we delay, the cost of inaction increases.
Is this how our story is due to end — the smartest species doomed by that Human characteristic of failing to see the bigger picture in pursuit of short term goals?
We say no more blah blah blah, no more exploitation of people and nature and the planet. No more whatever the f*** they are doing inside there.
We are already gasping for survival.
Tomorrow isn't an option, it will be too late.

Shout! The cement industry must be held to account. Our short movie is dedicated to the many millions demanding Climate Action — those choosing to keep up "the good fight".
See directly how EMC Volcanics rate against other concrete mixes, both in terms of the amount of CO2 generated and the energy used per cubic meter of concrete.
