MAKING CONCRETE A MORE SUSTAINABLE BUILDING MATERIAL

whitePaper | November 11, 2022

Concrete is an outstanding building material. It is widely available, economical, hard and durable like stone, and easy to work with – all attractive properties for the construction industry. However, concrete also has its disadvantages. The cement contained in concrete consumes a lot of energy during its production process and emits large amounts of CO2. This, combined with the enormous demand for concrete and the simultaneous low recycling rate, makes concrete less-than-friendly for the environment.
