    This new cementing blend uses natural pozzolan sourced from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to create concrete with a lower environmental impact. By replacing targeted percentages of ordinary Portland cement (OPC) which produces large amounts of CO2 with natural pozzolan and limestone KAUST has created a new concrete product that reduces CO2 emissions by approximately 80% over standard OPC concrete. In addition to the lower environmental impact KAUST’s cement blend exhibits excellent workability impermeability and strength.

  • Testing methods for pozzolanas
