This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Eco-efficient concrete is a comprehensive guide to the characteristics and environmental performance of key concrete types. Part one discusses the eco-efficiency and life cycle assessment of Portland cement concrete, before part two goes on to consider concrete with supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs). Concrete with non-reactive wastes is the focus of part three, including municipal solid waste incinerator (MSWI) concrete, and concrete with polymeric, construction and demolition wastes (CDW). An eco-efficient approach to concrete carbonation is also reviewed, followed by an investigation in part four of future alternative binders and the use of nano and biotech in concrete production. With its distinguished editors and international team of expert contributors, Eco-efficient concrete is a technical guide for all professionals, researchers and academics currently or potentially involved in the design, manufacture and use of eco-efficient concrete. The first part of the book examines the eco-efficiency and life cycle assessment of Portland cement concrete Chapters in the second part of the book consider concrete with supplementary cementitious materials, including properties and performance Reviews the eco-efficient approach to concrete carbonation

Summary : This chapter discusses strategies for mitigating CO2 emissions from the concrete chain. Current strategies, which focus on cement production processes such as clinker replacement, kiln efficiency, fuel substitution and CO2 capture, among others, are not effective enough to compensate for the increase in production that is expected to occur in ...

Summary : Carbonation is a major cause of concrete structure deterioration, leading to expensive maintenance and conservation operations. The eco-efficient construction agenda favors the increase of the use of supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) to reduce Portland cement's consumption and also the use of recycled aggregates concrete (RAC) in order to reduce the ...

Summary : Yeelimite-containing, Ca4Al3O12(SO4), cements are attracting considerable interest for their inherently low CO2 emissions during fabrication, and also because they offer the possibility of tailored properties and performances in the resulting mortars and concretes. Here, we initially disentangle the nomenclature and compositions of these cements and, chiefly, distinguish ...

Summary : Ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBFS) is a by-product of the iron-making process and because of its high calcium silicate content it has excellent cementious content and has been used in the construction industry for years as a replacement for ordinary Portland cement (OPC). GGBFS is also routinely used to ...
