e-book: Analysis of Cement and Other Building Materials Carbon Analysis | Sulfur Analysis | Halogens and Metals

Contents of the e-book

Understanding the composition of cement is crucial for professionals in construction and materials testing. The analysis of carbon, sulfur, halogens, and metals plays a critical role in ensuring the quality, durability, and sustainability of cement-based materials.

Whether you are a chemist, a materials engineer, or an industry professional, this e-book covers analytical methods and techniques that will help you optimize your processes, improve product quality, and meet regulatory requirements, like EN 13639. Analytical methods presented include combustion elemental analysis and atomic absorption spectroscopy.

In today's world, where sustainability and quality control are paramount, accurate analysis of cement and building materials throughout the production process is essential. As many companies in the industry are striving towards carbon neutrality, you will also find applications dealing with carbon capturing and monitoring solid derived fuels used to heat cement kilns.

Inside the e-book, you will find application notes on:

  • Carbon analysis of limestone, gypsum, and foam glass
  • Carbon and sulfur determination in cement
  • Major elements in building materials
  • Chlorine analysis of solid derived fuels
  • Evaluation of carbon capture potential in cement and concrete recycling
