Learn more about technical approaches for developing lower carbon alternatives to standard cement concrete.
In response to growing global concerns of the carbon footprint of the construction sector, there has been a great level of interest recently in developing low-carbon concrete.
This presentation will introduce feasible approaches for manufacturing and using alternatives to traditional cement to lower net global CO2 emissions in the construction sector.
The first section will discuss the utilisation of industrial by-products such as ground granulated blast furnace slag and/or circulating fluidised bed combustion fly ash to develop alkali-activated concretes.
The second section will present the carbonated reactive MgO-based concrete, which can harden and gain strength through sequestrating CO2.
This event is organised and hosted by ICE Manchester branch.
