Ecological cement, a friendly product developed by Cuba

HAVANA: In cooperation with Swiss scientists, the Cuban Centre for Research and Development of Structures and Materials is producing ecological cement with prospects to increase its output next year.

Cuba’s Juventud Rebelde newspaper quoted the Centre’s director Jose Fernando Martirena as saying that the new product is environment friendly and lowers the cost of cement production.

According to Martirena Cuba will produce 240 tons of ecological cement this month, a product whose content of clinker has been replaced with less environment harmful components, such as china clay but with no negative consequences for its resistance.

The new technology is expected to be transferred to cement producers in India, Brazil and China.
