Admixtures and sustainable concrete

Admixtures are defined in EN 934-2:2012 as: ‘material added during the mixing process of concrete in a quantity not more than 5% by mass of the cement content of the concrete, to modify the properties of the mix in the fresh and/or hardened state’. This article discusses the reduction of embodied carbon in concrete, that admixtures can provide.
