Technology for sustainability: Low-carbon concrete

Low-carbon concrete consists of industrial cement and mineral compounds such as calcined clays, fly ash, or blast-furnace slag. Depending on the dosage of additions, low-carbon concrete can reduce the carbon footprint of standard concrete by up to nearly 70 percent.

By providing a high volume, value-added end-of-life solution, low-carbon concrete has the potential to make a substantial positive impact on sustainable waste plastic management, as well as address the challenges posed by ongoing plastic production and increasing consumption.
