Myroslav Sanytsky, Khrystyna Sobol, Mychailo Shcturmay and Olga Khymko

 It has been shown that in the conditions of aggravation of ecological problems, shortage of high-quality raw materials for the production of Portland cement clinker a promising direction of cement industry development is more extensive waste utilization as well as production of low energy consuming cement clinker and modified composite cements, characterized by high content of active mineral additives. The use of modified composite cements both in mortars and concretes provides their high quality and durability and is of great social benefit in terms of resources preservation, energy saving, and environmental friendliness.
