The climate emergency is challenging engineers to consider a broader palette of non-traditional and/or novel structural materials. This webinar series looks at some of the alternatives, encouraging engineers to consider designing with these new materials and explaining how to deliver them successfully within projects.

In this session our expert panel will focus on low carbon concrete technology: today, tomorrow and how to get there. Presentations will outline:
  • Concrete technology today and how we can optimise for carbon - Paul Astle
  • Concrete technology tomorrow and the Low Carbon Concrete Group route map - ​Andrew Mullholland
The Low Carbon Concrete Group (LCCG) is part of the Green Construction Board and consists of representatives from across the concrete industry including concrete suppliers, contractors, specifiers, industry organisations, academia and professional institutions. The route map seeks to provide an objective and impartial guide to enable the use of low carbon concrete.
 
Reasons to view:
  • Gain an understanding of concrete's typical properties
  • Understand the key drivers of carbon in concrete and how to optimise
  • Increase your awareness of future concrete technology and how it might be applied
  Who should view:
  • Anyone that is responsible for, or influences, the specification of concrete
  • Structural engineering students
