Green Cement benefits

The demand is anticipated to witness a spike due to its own benefits.

This type is known for reducing the carbon footprint by about 40-50% during its production process.

The main reason for the rising uptake in growing number of construction activities is the fact that

  • it uses less water
  • it provides excellent thermal insulation
  • it provides superior fire resistance
    which enables structures built with green cement to withstand temperatures up to 2400F
  • it also makes the building resistant to moisture, thereby offering it a good protection against corrosion as well
