EPFL plans new building material for US$1 trillion development plan

First publishedon www.AggBusiness.com
Indian and Swiss researchers at the Construction Material Laboratory at Ecole Polytechnique Federale De Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland have developed a cost-effective, low-carbon cement called LC3.

The LC3 (Limestone Calcinated Clay Cement) is made up of limestone and low-grade clays and is said to reduce CO2 emissions by about 30%.

EPFL hopes to cater to the country with the new material in an effort to bank in on the government's US$1 trillion (€881.95 billion) infrastructure development plan.

It has contacted several agencies with regards to the matter, including the National Council for Building Material.
