Summary: Presentation on how to reduce embodied CO2 in Highways England projects and considerations on implementation. If the cement industry were a country, it would be the third-largest emitter in the world with 8% of the worlds CO2 emissions. It contributes more than aviation fuel (2.5%) and is not far behind the global agriculture business (12%)(BBC News). Cemfree can reduce this impact by offering an ultra-low carbon alternative to traditional cement that can save up to 80% in embodied CO2 compared to a conventional concrete mix. Cemfree is a totally cement-free alternative and a ground-breaking milestone in low-carbon concrete technology. Cemfree is easily implemented into existing ready-mix, volumetric and precast concrete processes with our new Cemfree Concentrate product, offering a real feasible reduction in CO2 in the UK’s concrete needs. This has been demonstrated on numerous award-winning projects, such as A14 and M25 Ultra Low Carbon Concrete Pilot.
