The term ‘Cem-Zero’ (CEM 0) is used in research programmes at Coventry University to describe the powders that are being developed to replace Portland Cement (PC) in concrete. These powders are made entirely of secondary minerals that are dried and ground as necessary and then pre-blended so the user may add them to a concrete using existing plant. Peter Claisse and Eshmaiel Ganjian of the Construction Materials Applied Research Group at Coventry University provide the details.
