ILCCC 2019

ESM: a key sponsor at the 1st International Conference on Innovation and Low-Carbon Cement and Concrete Technology (ILCCC); busy promoting Elkem Microsilica®


The construction industry has been under pressure to shift towards sustainability by developing alternative low-carbon cement and concrete technology. However, industrial applications are still scarce due to the gap existing between the fundamental research and industrial use as well as the lack of standards and a skilled work force in this area. To address the challenges, the First International Conference on Innovation in Low-Carbon Cement and Concrete Technology (ILCCC) took place recently at University College in London. The conference was designed to exchange the latest global scientific and technical achievements on the new technologies and to promote their industrial applications.

The conference had wide global participation, with more than one third of the delegates from China. The next conference will be in 2021.
