Much-maligned concrete has ‘excellent ecological profile’

Concrete and cement are often unfairly blamed for unacceptably high carbon-dioxide emissions, says Bryan Perrie, MD of The Concrete Institute.

The concept of so-called “pure” Portland cement is rapidly becoming obsolete with the development of technologically advanced composite cements more suited to current and future needs.  Grant Neser, commercial executive at AfriSam, says, “We are challenged with balancing the demands of ever more sophisticated business and industry with a fragile environment under growing pressure. We cannot afford to keep producing cements with conventional technologies that generate high levels of CO2 emissions while we have the option of using more technologically advanced composite cements which offer additional advantages in comparison to conventional cements.”
