Abstract:
Supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs), such as fly ash or blast-furnace slag, can achieve broad sustainable aims, including the mitigation of global warming and easing pressure on landfills. Specifically, SCMs reduce the use of portland cement, increase the recycled content of concrete, and can increase concrete’s durability.
