Celitement GmbH was founded by the Schwenk Group, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and by scientists of the KIT. We investigate novel hydraulic binders while focussing on marketable products. We are able to use state of the art analytical equipement and rely on our long term expertise in construction materials.

Celitements are high-quality hydraulic binders, which can be obtained via a patented process with good energy efficiency. Both raw material input and carbon dioxid emission are low.

Celitement GmbH has engineered a pilot plant which started operating in 2011. The plant supplies sufficient quantities for testing of basic properties and recipes and also to get Celitements on the market.

Furthermore, process optimization was, until June 2013, the major topic of a research project funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research BMBF and Project Management Jülich ptj: "Celitement - developing a sustainable cement".

Since October 2014 another research project is running. It is also funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research BMBF and Project Management VDI.
