Sustainable concrete and cement to green the construction ...

Aug 03, 2012  Adding green solutions to the mix. The CCI says the use of admixtures in concrete is a sure way to adapt to sustainable principles. Admixtures result in a reduction of cement and water content in mixes. The use of cement extenders such as fly-ash, ground granulated blastfurnace slag (ggbs) and silica fumes together with admixtures have been ...

Is Greener Concrete the Key to Sustainable Construction?

Aug 03, 2018  By making the concrete stronger, less Portland cement is needed. In addition to being stronger, the microstructure of the cement is denser which could lead to a more durable and sustainable concrete. By using waste materials from the food industry, the root vegetable nanoplatelets would be cheaper to source than additives like graphene.

Cement and Concrete Sustainability - PCA

There are the many reasons why concrete is a sustainable building material: Long life - Concrete structures are long-lived, such as pavements that have an average service life of 30-50 years. Low life-cycle cost - Concrete consumes minimum materials, energy and other resources for construction, and requires little to no maintenance throughout ...
