For many building materials, binder is one of the most important components. The quality of the binder determines the properties of concrete, such as strength, sustainability and durability. Cement is the most applied binder in concrete. Portland cement and Blast furnace slag cement are the most used binders. Although the use of cement has a long history and a lot of research has been done, there are still important reasons for further development. The production of Portland cement is responsible for 5% of total worldwide man-made CO2 emission every year. The trend is that in the future it will still increase. The other reason for further development is the use of alternative raw materials, to meet updated and higher criteria, such as better sustainability and longer durability. Inorganic binders, where cement technology belongs to, is the knowledge field of ASCEM. As an independent institute, ASCEM is ready for answering questions and tackling challenges in this field.
