Master thesis: Concrete Change - Santiago Escudero Carmona

The aim of the thesis work has been to analyse the potential for and effects of increasing the replacement ratio of clinker content in cement through the introduction of alternative binders. The results show that in the short term (5-10 years) it is possible, in most EU regions, to meet the demand for conventional alternate binders. In the long term (10-30 years), however, it will not be possible to fulfil a sufficient replacement in all European regions using only these two alternative binders. These finding confirms the importance of increasing efforts to develop other measures to reduce the climate impact from concrete and cement, including increased  use of lesser known binders.
