Abstract The aim of this paper was to study the behaviour of new high-performance fibre-reinforced cement composite materials (FRCC) that are reinforced with polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) fibres and subjected to long-term loading. In these composites, part of the cement has been replaced with micro and nano fillers. The creep and shrinkage deformations of the new compositions were determined. In addition, the compressive strength, modulus of elasticity and creep coefficient of the material was determined. The results of the experiments permitted the prediction of long-term deformations of the FRCC. Wider use of FRCC material would provide a possibility to reduce the impact on environment because the high strength concrete (HSC) have lower water/ cement ratio. The cement production process accounts for up to 10% of the total carbon dioxide emissions in the world. It will also permit the construction of sustainable next generation structures with thin walls and large spans that cannot be built using the traditional concrete
