The high carbon emissions due to cement production is one of the most critical issues for fostering concrete sustainability. In the last decades, supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) in concrete have become very common to produce sustainable concrete. Moreover, today, the growing worldwide demand for infrastructures is causing over-exploited natural material sources. Concerned by the limited availability of SCMs and their regional variation, there is today an urgent need for exploration of alternative SCMs which are locally available in the production of durable concrete
