All around the world, Lafarge offers ranges of cements with lower CO2 emissions compared with traditional cements. These multi-component cements contain less clinker, whose production is responsible for a large proportion of cement's carbon footprint. As a substitute, they incorporate by-products from other industries, such as slag from steel production or fly ash from coal-fired power plants.
Lafarge lower carbon cements also have high mechanical performances, often combined with specific workability qualities. When incorporated into concretes, they improve their long-term resistance compared with that of traditional concretes.
They can be used in all types of constructions and infrastructure including large structures with very specific requirements, such as:
- bridges & footbridges,
