This On Demand CEU is a recorded presentation from a previously live webinar event. Cutting-edge building projects must use durable materials that also help reduce carbon footprint. Concrete is the material of choice for the tallest buildings in the world and infrastructure designed to last centuries.

This session explores how new products using pozzolans, calcined clay, biochar, and other innovations enhance a product that is nearly 5,000 years in development and provides another pathway for meeting future challenges in the built environment. This presentation includes the histories, compositions, and environmental impacts of these technologies and offers case studies to show how innovation is being put into action.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe new technologies used in concrete manufacturing that utilize recycling of materials.
  • List ways in which these innovative concrete products can improve project performance.
  • Explain how to implement the latest concrete innovations in building and infrastructure projects.
  • Discuss the importance of incorporating new technologies to enhance resilience and sustainability in the built environment.

Pre-requisite: Basic knowledge of concrete and its use in the construction.
