Low Carbon Concrete for Arctic Climate with Excellent Sustainability and Durability
What we do
The frost resistance issue is likely the biggest challenge/obstacle in reducing the carbon footprint of concrete. Ar2CorD will focus on the optimisation of low carbon concrete (LCC) with the use of established and non-established locally available supplementary cementitious materials (SCM), with substitution of minimally 30% of portland cement. The solutions to the issues created by the freeze-thaw cycle encountered in Arctic conditions will be addressed to achieve a suitable evaluation system for LCC.
