Course Title: Innovations and Operations: Developments in Sustainable Precast Concrete

Course Description:

Precast concrete is a durable, resilient material that can provide many benefits to efficient, sustainable structures in the long term. While concrete does have an up-front CO2 impact, the industry is working to reduce GHG emissions and increase the efficiency of its products.

This presentation will discuss technical innovations to reduce the carbon footprint of concrete and examine current process improvements that are pushing the industry forward to a more sustainable future.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Learn about attributes, benefits and considerations of using precast concrete in the holistic design of sustainable structures.
  2. Examine established and developing technologies aimed at reducing the environmental impact of precast concrete.
  3. Discover process improvements, production efficiencies and other producer efforts that are creating GHG reductions today.
  4. Demonstrate ways that concrete producers are lowering the environmental impact of their products, and how projects are achieving sustainability goals with concrete.
