Lafarge lower carbon cements
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.
