New Cements to Mitigate the Climatic Change

The cement industry is a significant carbon dioxide emitter mainly due to the calcination process and combustion of fuels. Therefore, the use of ternary cements, among other type of low-carbon cements, is being promoted to achieve the target of reducing carbon dioxide emissions to 50–55% below 1990 levels by 2030 and net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, according to most of the proposed cement industry roadmaps for moving to a low carbon economy in 2050.

This webinar aims to analyse the state of the art of the low-carbon cements as a key factor in achieving robust and reliable levers to achieve the expected net-zero carbon emissions. As a result of this aim, experts in the field will participate on this webinar. To contribute to this field, the widespread production and use of low-carbon cements urgently requires skilled multidisciplinary architects and engineers who can implement and use the next generation of sustainable cements with enhanced durability, reducing environmental impact and costs.

Technical University of Madrid, Spain

Dr. Miguel Ángel Sanjuán graduated in Chemistry in 1987 at the Complutense University of Madrid in Spain. In 1988, he joined Técnicas Reunidas where he worked successfully in as Chemical Process Engineer. In 1992, he obtained his PhD in Industrial Chemistry from the Complutense University defending a Thesis developed in the “Eduardo Torroja” Institute of Construction Sciences on corrosion of concrete steel reinforcement. Between 1993 and 1995 he was an Academic Visitor (Marie Curie Fellow) at Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine, London, UK. His involvement in the cement industry began in 1997, as he started working for the Cement and Mortars Area of the Spanish Institute of Cement and its Applications (IECA). Since 2001 to 2013, he was the Technical Director of the IECA’s Industrial department in charge of the certification of more than 200 cements. He was involved in several projects related to the use of additions in cements. Currently, Dr Miguel Ángel Sanjuán is the Head of the Cement and Mortars Area of the Spanish Institute of Cement and its Applications (IECA) and is an Associate Professor at Polytechnic University of Madrid since 2009. He is the Secretary of the Spanish Standardization Technical Committee AEN/CTN-80 “Cements and lime for construction” and Convenor of the European Standardization Technical Committee CEN/TC51/WG14 “Hydraulic Road Binders”.

Invited Speakers

Department of Engineering and Applied Sciences, University of Bergamo, Viale Marconi, Dalmine (BG), Italy

Luigi Coppola, Civil Engineer, Associate Professor at University of Bergamo (Italy) – Department of Engineering and Applied Sciences and President of American Concrete Institute Italy Chapter. He has authored more than 300 original papers, and 21 books on admixtures for concrete, alternative low-carbon binders, waste management in concrete production, deterioration, durability and repair of concrete structures, mix-design, deterioration and restoration of historical buildings, corrosion and protection of rebars in reinforced concrete structures. In June 2000 Luigi Coppola was conferred an award for the “Outstanding and sustained contributions to enhance the Durability of Concrete” by the American Concrete Institute (ACI) and the Canadian Institute of Materials, Energy and Transportation (CANMET). Editor and member of many international Journals, he is the chairperson of Thirteenth International Conference on Superplasticizers and other Chemical Admixtures in Concrete – Milan, Italy, July 10-13, 2022 and Fifteenth International Conference on Recent Advances in Concrete Technology and Sustainability Issues – Milan, Italy, July 13-15, 2022.
