EMC complies with materials' standards, e.g., BS 8615-1 (UK), and EN 197-1 (EU), ASTM C618 (USA)
Third party testing by BRE confirms that concrete made using EMC processed natural pozzolans far exceeds the minimum “strength activity index” requirements set out by BSI in their UK standards
(e.g. EMC’s 28 days strength activity index is 89% vs. minimum requirement of 70%)
While "Roman Concrete" demonstrates the exceptional durability demonstrated by, e.g. Pantheon 125 AD, construction productivity is also a key requirement in modern construction. By way of example, volcanic ash processed by EMC will meet these requirements at 70% replacement of the Portland cement as compared to 15-20% before such processing.
