EPD - Ready-mixed concrete

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

At present, about 33 billion tonnes of concrete are produced each year, and the cement used in concrete is responsible for five percent of total anthropogenic CO2 emissions.
The environmental impact assessment s for ready-mixed
concrete in Austria are calculated using Life Cycle Assessment. For this, 113 mixes from seven ready-mixed concrete companies, which produce around 40% of the ready-mixed concrete used in Austria, were reported.
In order to quantify the uncertainties in the background data, the Monte Carlo simulation method is used.
