The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) granted the following patents covering binary blends of Roman Cement, also referred to as “First Generation” Roman Cement: US Pat No 7,799,128, which was fast-tracked under the Green Technology Pilot Program initiated Dec 2009, US Pat No 7,972,432, and US Pat No 8,323,399. Patents in countries outside the U.S. have also been issued covering binary blends of First Generation Roman Cement.

Roman Cement has other US and foreign patents pending relating to various aspects and improvements of Roman Cement, including the following patents covering ternary blends of Roman Cement, also referred to as “Second Generation” Roman Cement: US Pat No 8,377,201, US Pat No 8,414,700, US Pat No 8,551,245 and US Pat 8,974,593. Second Generation Roman Cement improves upon First Generation Roman Cement in several key areas, including reduced water demand, grinding and shipping costs, and permeability.

Highly particle packed Roman Cement blends, also referred to as “Third Generation” Roman Cement is described in International US Pat No. 9,102,567.

An alternative method consisting in the modification of pozzolanic chemistry through blending is described in US Pat No 9,067,824.
