Lafarge introduces portland-limestone cement in Canada

September 7, 2011 - Lafarge has introduced a new portland-limestone cement (PLC) commercial offering in Canada, which is produced by intergrinding portland cement clinker with between 6% and 15% limestone. Widely used in Europe for over 25 years, PLC is expected to reduce CO2 emissions by 160,000 tonnes annually, which is equivalent to taking over 30,000 cars off the road, it explains.
