Concrete Futures Lecture: Expanding the use of lower carbon concretes

Recorded:Wednesday 03 November 2021
Presented by:Elaine Toogood, Head of Architecture, The Concrete Centre
CPD:1 hours

The use of lower carbon concretes and cements is a key lever in the UK concrete and cement industry roadmap to beyond net zero. This event recording provides an update on research to expand the range of lower carbon concretes covered by BS 8500, innovation in precast concrete and practical guidance for the use of other lower carbon concretes using alkali-activated cements (AACMs).

Speakers include cement experts and concrete technologists, who will update on multi-component cements in BS 8500 and representatives from contractors who will look at innovative solutions for carbon reduction using precast concrete and practical guidance to the use of Geopolymer and Alkali Activated Cement concretes in projects happening now.

Duration: 1 hour, 7 minutes
