Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Concrete is one of the most widely-used of all materials with a significant environmental impact. This important book reviews the wealth of recent research on developing more eco-efficient concrete. The editors have compiled contributions from an international group of authors which review a wide range of technologies and strategies.  The book presents a very useful input for producing more ecologically friendly concrete. It achieves this goal by dealing with the impact of the concrete from a variety of viewpoints: the concrete constituents themselves, cement and concrete, the concrete as a whole, the application of wastes and by-products, the use of natural materials of low environmental impact, as well as exploring new types of binders.

The opening sections discuss the eco-efficiency and life cycle assessment of Portland cement concrete and consider concrete with supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs). Part three focuses on concrete with non-reactive wastes, including municipal solid waste incinerator (MSWI) concrete, concrete with polymeric, construction and demolition wastes (CDW) and offers an eco-efficient approach to concrete carbonation.  The conclusion investigates future alternative binders and the use of nano and biotech in concrete production.
