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

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 the future. Binder use efficiency is therefore a crucial strategy for decreasing environmental impacts. Exploratory data from literature, real market and lab research indicates that the potential for decreasing emissions

This chapter discusses the development of a materials science approach with an application to nanotechnology to optimize the processing and micro/nanoscale structure of cement-based materials reinforced with nanosized fibers and carbon nanotubes. The dispersion of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and carbon nanofibers (CNFs) for use in cementitious composites and specifically the effect of ultrasonication energy are discussed in detail. The nanomechanical properties of the CNT/ CNF cementitious nanocomposites are examined through nanoindentation experiments. Additionally, the excellent reinforcing ability of

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 consumption of primary aggregates and to avoid landfill disposal of concrete waste. A wide range of literature has been published in the field of concrete carbonation related to the use

With the current focus on sustainability, it is necessary to evaluate cement’s environmental impact properly, especially when developing new ‘green’ concrete types. Therefore, this chapter investigates the available literature on every process concerned during the production of cement. Inventory data on energy use, CO2, PM10, SOx and NOx emissions are collected. Alternatives and improvement are briefly described regarding energy performance and mineralogy changes that it induces for clinker.

This chapter discusses the major natural pozzolans, along with the technical, economic and environmental advantages of using such materials in cement manufacture. The characterisation, pozzolanic properties, reaction kinetics and mechanical strength of pozzolans of different origins are described. The use of new pozzolans obtained from fired clay waste, which can be classified as a natural calcined pozzolan, is also addressed.

This chapter aims to stress the importance of finding new artificial pozzolans for the manufacture of future, more eco-efficient cements and concretes, given the social and environmental benefits they deliver. It also addresses the scientific (characterisation, pozzolanic properties, reaction kinetics) and technical (physical and mechanical) aspects of new blended cement matrices.

This chapter discusses various methods available for evaluating pozzolans as cement replacement materials. The merits and disadvantages of the methods are elaborated, and some existing anomalies are highlighted. Guides on applying a combination of these methods are presented in order to evaluate pozzolans in a way that complies with pozzolan performance in concrete.

The volume of polymeric wastes such as tyre rubber and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles is increasing at a fast rate. An estimated 1000 million tyres reach the end of their useful lives every year and 5000 million more are expected to be discarded in a regular basis by the year 2030. Only a small part is currently recycled and millions of tyres are just stockpiled, landfilled or buried. As for PET bottles annual consumption is over 300 000 million units. The majority is just landfilled.

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 between yeelimite-rich calcium sulfoaluminate cements (CSA, Al2O3 content ranging between 30 and 40wt%) and belite-rich yeelimite-intermediate (BCSAF, Al2O3 content ~15wt%) cements, also known as sulfobelite. Belite-active BCSAF cement may

This chapter presents the effects of supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) on properties affecting the durability of concrete (porosity, permeability), and on the major factors affecting concrete durability (alkali– silica reaction, delayed ettringite formation, sulphate attacks, acid attacks, frost resistance, abrasion, carbonation and chloride ingress). General trends and specific effects of ground-granulated blast-furnace slag, fly ash, silica fume and metakaolin, when used as cement replacement, are reported and discussed.

The concrete industry is considered to be a large consumer of energy and natural resources, and is one of the main sources of greenhouse emissions and waste generation. The production and utilization of concrete and concrete structures have a large impact on the environment, and so the environmental assessment of concrete is of great importance in terms of achieving a sustainable society. This chapter includes instructions on how to apply the life cycle assessment (LCA) methodology to concrete, including a
