Carbon Uptake in the Environmental Footprint of the US Concrete Industry

To achieve carbon neutrality, it is essential to offset a portion of the emission of greenhouse gases (GHGs) from the production of cement. In this sense, the natural carbon uptake due to the inherent properties of concrete products plays an important role in offsetting GHG emissions. In this presentation, the carbon uptake of US concrete production for different applications will be presented. The influential factors on the intensity of carbon uptake, including the mix design constituents, element geometry, and climate conditions will be explained to show the importance of context in the uptake calculation. The MIT Carbon Uptake tool will be demonstrated, and different examples of uptake calculation in concrete structures will be reviewed to show the value of uptake accounting in the environmental footprint of concrete products, structures, and the industry.

How Sustainability, EPDs, and Whole Building Life Cycle Assessment are Converging at a Concrete Plant Near You

 

Product Spotlight presented by CalPortland

This session provides an overview of scalable solutions to reduce concrete’s carbon footprint. With efforts to reduce embodied carbon emissions in buildings and infrastructure, the demand for low-embodied-carbon concrete is growing rapidly and is viewed as a vital part of slowing the effects of climate change.
