Blended cements are becoming more popular to reduce CO₂ emissions and fuel consumption. They are produced by replacing clinker with additives like fly ash, pozzolan, or slag and substituting some fuel with waste materials such as RDF, used tires, elephant grass, and nut shells. These additives have similar or superior cement properties to traditional Portland cement but have a more complex mineralogical composition.
This application note presents typical results obtained while analyzing the mineralogical phases of blended cement, demonstrating the effectiveness of Rigaku’s MiniFlex XpC and EasyX software in providing accurate and comprehensive analysis.
