  2. Sustainability of Concrete

    By Pierre-Claude Aïtcin, Sidney Mindess

    Series: Modern Concrete Technology

    Production of Portland cement is responsible for about seven percent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. The pressure to make the production of concrete more sustainable, or "greener", is considerable and increasing. This requires a wholesale shift in processes, materials and methods in...

  3. Binders for Durable and Sustainable Concrete

    By Pierre-Claude Aïtcin

    Series: Modern Concrete Technology

    Linking theory to practice, this book provides a better fundamental understanding of Portland cement and hydraulic binders which is necessary to make better concrete. It has been clearly demonstrated that concrete durability is closely linked to its water/binder ratio and proper curing during the...
