Modern Trends and Developments of New Cement for Sustainability of Construction Materials: A Review
Abstract: This research describes an elaborative discussion on the modern trends and developments of new cements for sustainability of construction materials. The new cements manufacturing is provided a fundamental understanding of the characteristics of new cements for sustainability of construction materials in terms of three parts: Eco-cement; Steel slag concrete; and Municipal slag concrete. Eco-cement with saving of natural resources by the utilization of wastes and saving energy in cements manufacturing. Steel slag concrete whose binder is steel slag, which includes steel slag with fly ash, steel slag hydrated matrix and steelmaking slag carbonated matrix. Municipal slag concrete whose binder is a ground granulated melt-solidified slag derived municipal solid waste or sewage sludge. This research accordingly attempts to focus on the modern trends and developments of new cements for sustainability of construction materials.
Keywords: Eco-cement, steel slag concrete, municipal slag concrete, sustainability, construction materials
