White Paper Title:
Chemistry of Fresh Concrete Carbonation
Sean Monkman, PhD PEng, Vice President of Technology Development,
Unlike with mature concrete, applying carbon dioxide to fresh concrete effectively serves as permanent CO2 storage, and increases the strength of the masonry product. This can allow producers to create a more sustainable concrete, while offering added performance benefits to builders. The concrete industry can use this opportunity to compete with other construction materials in the green building market.
