[ hide overview ]

Concrete and Sustainability Concrete is by far the most common building material— accounting for twice the volume of all other such materials combined. With such a huge global economic impact, the industry has a correspondingly considerable responsibility to use it sustainably. Written by experts who pioneered research into environmental issues and concrete, Concrete and Sustainability examines the sustainability issues of the world’s main construction material and proposes attainable solutions. It provides a complete overview of the topic and tackles the complexity of the challenges from different angles.

This book offers new data regarding the social and economic importance of concrete and proposes a discussion centered on a holistic approach in terms of resource availability, technical viability, economic feasibility, and environmental compatibility. The authors attribute a growing worldwide concern and understanding of sustainability issues, and an increased focus on climate change as the catalyst in this process. Instead of offering detailed technical advice or recommendations on sustainable issues, they provide examples showcasing sustainability efforts taking place in the concrete environment worldwide. The book includes examples and ideas for solutions from a large number of countries from across the globe.

It presents a holistic and more complete overview of the emission and absorption topic, takes a look at the challenges from a combined old and new world viewing platform and offers an exploration of issues from a social and economic perspective. Concrete and Sustainability details the various rules and regulations that the industry is facing, discusses the various environmental challenges, and explores its impact. As emission, absorptions, and recycling have been the most central elements of discussion in the cement and concrete environment so far, these topics each receive their own chapters. This book also discusses other issues of concern within the various platforms in the industry, as well as future developments, and provides a comprehensive reference list.

[ hide overview ]

The Sustainable Use of Concrete Cement-based concrete has excellent properties as a construction material, and the raw materials of cement-rocks, and limestone and clay-are bountiful. Yet its production generates very high quantities of CO2, in its manufacture at source and indirectly through the use of steel and transport. Infrastructure development over the past two centuries has been unsustainable. Although the construction sector, in the broadest sense, has come to recognise this it has been slow to adjust. Indeed comprehensive information and relevant practical guidance are very scarce. This book provides guidance on accomplishing sustainable concrete construction. It examines the meaning of sustainability, looks at environmental, economic and social and cultural aspects, considering an evaluation system of sustainability, including various tools and ISO standards, and explores technologies for sustainability, with case studies.
