Low carbon concrete

Low embodied carbon constituents. Concrete is a low carbon material. Its versatility, performance and local availability has resulted in it being the second most consumed material globally (after water). The potential to reduce global carbon emissions, by reducing the embodied carbon of such a widely used material are not in doubt.

Low Carbon Concrete and Its Advantages - The Constructor

Feb 11, 2019  Low carbon concrete has attracted significant attention due to the amount of CO2 that traditional concrete emits. It is demonstrated that, cement have biggest contribution in CO2 emission by 75% of total CO2 emits by concrete, and aggregate is the next great contributor by less than 20%. CO2 emitted by aggregate is mainly due to electricity and ...

Imagine if concrete could help reverse climate change.

Concrete is the second most used material in the world, and its key ingredient - cement - is a big driver of greenhouse gas emissions (more than twice that of global air travel).Learn how reducing emissions from cement and using concrete to store carbon dioxide can be game-changing in the climate fight.

Low Carbon Concrete Code StopWaste - Home, Work, School

Low Carbon Concrete Code. The production and supply of materials used in buildings cause greenhouse gases. Globally, concrete is estimated to be responsible for 6-10% of total emissions. Through mix designs, the emissions per cubic yard of concrete can be lowered. Typically, this includes substitutes for cement that come from recycled materials.

Concrete and cement are some of the most carbon-intensive materials in our built environment. The carbon “embodied” in concrete and other materials makes up more than one-quarter of the greenhouse gas emissions from the global building sector. These embodied carbon emissions arise from the manufacture, transportation, installation, maintenance, and disposal of building materials.
