I have a residue made of elements quite close to those

Customer Question

I have a residue made of elements quite close to those needed to make cement - I wanted to know if it is possible to actually turn it into cement - even with use of additives - , and the process for so doing. The residue is made of: Al2O3: 2.9 - 13 % CaO:
19 - 65 % Si2O: 11 - 20 % SO3: 1 - 2.5 % MgO: 7 - 18 % Cr2O3: 0.20 - 2 %

Actually cement is a very specific product and isn't synthesized. Is it possible that what you're asking about making is concrete? Or are you looking to actually create something that is not cement but is very similar to cement in its properties?

Also would be helpful to know what similarities you think this has with what type of cement.
