Something awesome about concrete

July 8 / Stacey / Comments (0)

Cement is the substance that holds together the other substances used to make concrete, shale and limestone.  Concrete however has a huge carbon footprint causing the release of an enormous amount of CO2.  Concrete is responsible for 7% of greenhouse emissions.  There is good news though.  A new type of cement has been developed that traps the CO2 inside forever.  The advantage to this is that CO2 gives concrete it's strength, so by trapping it inside increases the strength of the concrete.  This new cement also converts the CO2 into a mineral decreasing health concerns.  The construction industry as a whole evolves each day as research continues to move the products themselves forward.
