Webinar: Realistic Approaches to Reducing CO2 Emissions from Cement and Concrete
Wednesday 27th October 2021, 14:00
Part of the TFI Network+ ‘Blue Skies, Green Future’ webinar series, this session will be a presentation from Professor Karen Scrivener on realistic approaches to reducing CO2 emissions from cement and concrete.
Cement and concrete production accounts for some 7-8% or annual CO2 emissions worldwide. The can be attribute solely to the incredibly large volumes produced as concrete has an intrinsic carbon footprint which is lower than almost all alternative materials. Nevertheless there is still considerable scope for reduction, which is critical if we are to achieve carbon neutrality by mid century. Here, Professor Karen Scrivener will look at practical solutions. There is no magic bullet and targets will only be met by a combination of measures.
Karen Louise Scrivener is a material chemist known for her pioneering works in cementitious materials. She is the head of Laboratory of Construction Materials at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. and had served as the Editor-in Chief of the Cement and Concrete Research journal for 15 years.
