1st International Conference on Mg-based Cements

February 10, 2026 to February 12, 2026

Centre Loewenberg
Loewenberg 45B
Murten    Switzerland
Sponsor(s): Empa
ACI Co-Sponsored: 
ACI Closed Event: False

To limit global temperature rise to below 2°C, we need to radically and rapidly change the way we build and use materials, since construction is responsible for 20–40% of industrial CO2 emissions. Magnesium-based cements have the potential to become a major carbon sink in the construction industry. The conference aims at exchanging state-of-the-art knowledge on future applications, from binder production to application as concrete workability, reaction kinetics, admixtures, hydrates, strength development, durability and leaching. Topics • Magnesium carbonate cements • Magnesium silicate cements • Magnesium oxychloride / oxysulfate cements • Magnesium phosphate cements • Carbonation hardening
