Eco-friendly Concrete

Transcript: Annual Global Concrete/Cement Production Harms of Concrete/Cement Wet concrete/cement is . . . Caustic Abrasive Containing Alkaline Compounds - Ex. Lime Crystalline Silica Chromium Other compounds that are corrosive to human tissue, cause allergic reaction Long term exposure to the eyes and lungs can cause blindness, silicosis, and lung cancer Landfills/Waste produce Leachate Greenhouse gases MSW (Municipal Solid Waste) Management accounted for 14.1% of man-made methane gas emissions in the US in 2016. Methane is 28-36 times more potent as a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide. Leachate is a toxic liquid produced when rainwater mixes with waste. This liquid may contain heavy metals, organic and inorganic chemicals, and pathogens. What characteristics of concrete are needed? Which materials are best suited to produce this material? How could this material be produced, both small and large scale? Waste Waste Management Annual Global Trash Production- 1.3 Billion Tons of Waste A concrete-like construction material made almost entirely out of materials that are usually considered non-recyclable. Eco-friendly Concrete why? Research Cost Concrete - 5 billion cubic yards Cement - 1.56 billion tons Links $205.4 Billion in 2010 Projected $375 Billion by 2025 Solving environmental & health problems all at once
