Green cement, also known as sustainable or eco-friendly cement, is an advanced construction material designed to minimize the environmental impact associated with traditional cement production. Unlike conventional Portland cement, green cement incorporates innovative technologies and processes that reduce carbon emissions and energy consumption. It often utilizes industrial by-products like fly ash, slag, or limestone as partial substitutes for clinker, the primary ingredient in traditional cement. Green cement aims to mitigate carbon dioxide emissions while maintaining the structural integrity and performance characteristics required for construction projects.
