Supplementary Cementing Material (SCM)

Supplementary cementing materials (SCM) are reclaimed industrial by-products such as fly ash, silica fume or ground granulated blast-furnace slag (GGBFS) which can partially replace Portland cement in Concrete. The manufacturing of one tonne of Portland Cement produces about one tonne of CO2, a Greenhouse Gas linked to global warming. Using SCM instead of Portland Cement in concrete reduces its “CO2 signature”. SCM in concrete not only reduces GHG emissions but improves long-term strength and durability characteristics, and typically is more economical than normal Portland cement concrete.
