The carbon footprint from the billions of tons of concrete placed each year is substantial, resulting in nearly 8% of total global emissions. This session will provide attendees with tools to reduce the carbon footprint of concrete through use of high-volume cement substitutes, concrete mix optimization, and carbon sequestering technologies.
Understand the carbon impacts of concrete and Portland Cement, and methods to mitigate the impacts.
Identify Portland Cement substitutes, both natural pozzolans and industrial byproducts, and the effects they have on concrete structures during placement and use.
Understand technologies for carbon sequestration in cement, manufactured aggregates, and concrete.
Recall the benefits, costs and challenges of technologies and materials to reduce the carbon footprint of concrete structures.
