Lower-carbon concrete technologies

In this article, we introduce the IStructE's new concrete technology tracker, which has been compiled to inform members about the development of lower-carbon alternatives to conventional Portland cement-based concrete. We also look in more detail at four emerging technologies: Limestone Calcined Clay Cement, Seratech, Cambridge Electric Cement, and Brimstone.
