Low Carbon Concrete: for more sustainable outcomes on projects
Watch the recording of the live event below
With the built environment industry responsible for 40% of global carbon emissions we collectively need to make significant changes if we are going to achieve our commitments to be Net Zero by 2030.
With Australia producing approximately 70 million tons of pre-mixed concrete each year and with demand expected to increase by 40% by 2050, choosing low carbon concrete over traditional concrete is key to further reduce carbon emissions.
Our recent event included two presentations by Shalini Trikha, Technical Manager, ecologiQ and Dr Fangjie Chen, Senior Materials Engineer at Arup on initiatives that are supporting a step change for low carbon concrete across the industry.
