Reducing Embodied Carbon in Concrete

Presented by: 

Stephanie Hampton

 Presentation Description:


Portland cement manufacturers have developed a modified formulation of their most important product to respond to growing calls for reducing embodied carbon associated with construction. Portland-limestone cement (PLC) is a blended cement, with a higher limestone content, which results in a product that works the same, measures the same, and performs the same, but with a reduction in carbon footprint of 10% on average.

As a key part of the construction industry, cement manufacturers have already made major contributions to help address global climate change. They recognize that they can play a big role and continue to innovate for better binders with even more favorable environmental performance. PLC is extensively tested, proven technology, readily available through the same supply chain that already successfully serves developers, builders, and contractors. It offers the design community a new way to think about concrete while still offering the resilience and sustainability they’ve come to expect from it.
