Durability of concrete with new supplementary cementitious materials

The aim is to enable the use of new SCMs of concrete to decrease the CO2 emissions of the concrete production and promote circular building. It is important that the new SCMs do not affect the durability of concrete constructions negatively. Many potential binders have a high content of alkali. It is necessary to examine how it affects the risk of the development of harmful alkali/silicon reactions in concrete before acceptance criteria for the new SCM scan be set.
