Description

Handbook of Low Carbon Concrete brings together the latest breakthroughs in the design, production, and application of low carbon concrete. In this handbook, the editors and contributors have paid extra attention to the emissions generated by coarse aggregates, emissions due to fine aggregates, and emissions due to cement, fly ash, GGBFS, and admixtures. In addition, the book provides expert coverage on emissions due to concrete batching, transport and placement, and emissions generated by typical commercially produced concretes.

Key Features

  • Includes the tools and methods for reducing the emissions of greenhouse gases
  • Explores technologies, such as carbon capture, storage, and substitute cements
  • Provides essential data that helps determine the unique factors involved in designing large, new green cement plants

Readership

Civil Engineers, Researchers, Designers, Material Engineers, and Environmental Engineers
