Low carbon concrete and other materials slated for uplift

Numbers crunched by Edge Environment have shown that the low carbon concrete alone will save 42 per cent of emissions compared to traditional concrete. with industrial fly-ash and recycled aggregates. Achieving carbon neutrality also involves maximising renewable energy to keep the carbon footprint down of occupants and tenants.

Low Carbon Concrete - Starting from the Ground Up - Zero

U.S. Concrete uses several methods to lower the carbon footprint of its concrete — from using CarbonCure, to using high strength aggregate that lowers the need for cement, to incorporating fly ash from burning coal or steel slag into cement. Incorporating steel slag reduces Portland Cement usage by as much as 50%.

PDF Performance of Rigid Pavements Containing Recycled

Interest in portland cement concrete (PCC) recycling using recycled concrete aggregates (RCA) was widespread in the mid-1970's. Increased interest is expected due to decreased availability of new aggregates, emphasis being placed on Green Highways, and exceptionably lowered carbon footprint for recycled projects.
