COTE®: Low Carbon Concrete Construction

Friday, June 14, 2024

Holcim is a global leader in sustainable building materials solutions and has introduced a new product called ECOPact. This new type of concrete has 30% less carbon than typical concrete. As a global cement manufacturer, they have a unique perspective on the challenges facing the industry in decarbonizing concrete construction. This presentation will provide insights into the cement manufacturing process, its impact on concrete, methods of measuring CO2, and their approach to reducing emissions.

Learning objectives

  • Case studies of projects leveraging ECOPact low-carbon concrete
  • The process of creating Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) and their importance in concrete selection
  • Insights into the cement manufacturing process, focusing on the role of supplementary cementitious materials in achieving lower embodied carbon
  • An overview of our comprehensive ECOPact offerings and what can be achieved currently
  • An introduction to digital concrete services for concrete optimization
