Centre for Sustainable Cement and Quicklime Production

There is a great need for strengthening of research in production of limestone based products, especially in the high temperature processes where substantial amounts of carbon dioxide is generated. The Centre for Sustainable Cement and Quicklime Production joins a strong research environment with the largest Swedish industrial actors in cement and quicklime production.
