The worldwide production of cement results in around 8% of the total anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Improving the sustainability performance of concrete is imperative for the construction sector. During the lunch lecture, ENCI is sharing with us how they are implementing practical measures in order to reduce the carbon footprint of concrete by several state of the art techniques such as carbon capture (LEILAC project), the implementation of new binder materials, and the recycling of concrete.
