Specifying Low-Carbon Concrete Without EPDs
Designers are taking action to reduce carbon in the concrete materials they choose for projects. In many markets however, transparent information provided by tools such as Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) is unavailable, complicating these efforts.
- Recommendations on project approaches for reducing embodied carbon in concrete structures
- A methodology for evaluating concrete mix designs in the absence of EPDs
- Initial successes in achieving high performance, low-carbon concrete
