THERE'S NO BETTER TIME FOR

ADVANCEMENTTM

America's most environmentally friendly portland-limestone blended cement is here.

Sustainability, Performance and Beauty

Rise Together

ADVANCEMENTTM is a new line of blended hydraulic cements that represents CalPortland's commitment to the environment and long line of performance products. With up to 15% limestone by mass, ADVANCEMENTTM generates approximately 10% less CO2 to reduce the embodied energy per ton of cement.

ADVANCEMENTTM makes ordinary
Portland cement extraordinary.

Environment

  • The blending of limestone with clinker in the manufacturing process reduces embodied carbon to dramatically lower greenhouse gas emissions.
  • ADVANCEMENTTM can be combined with other concrete carbon reduction technologies to further enhance performance and increasingly reduce concrete's embodied carbon.

Performance

  • ADVANCEMENTTM is a portland-limestone cement that's relatively new to the United States but has been used successfully in Europe and around the world for decades.
  • Performs equal to or better than ordinary portland cement especially in combination with supplementary cementitious materials.

Aesthetics

  • The attractive light color and reduced environmental impact of ADVANCEMENTTM LT gives architects and engineers the ability to build more sustainable, resilient and appealing concrete buildings.
