ABSTRACT
The article examines the use of rapid-setting calcium sulfoaluminate (CSA) cement in building construction. Particular focus is given to how it reduces the amount of energy and carbon dioxide emissions associated with cement production. Consequently, the material can play a significant role in improving the sustainability of construction materials by reducing the quantity of non-renewable resources used during manufacturing. The durability and life cycle of cement is also examined.
