The 2020 Lunch and Learn series is upon us and we are going to post information about past and upcoming sessions here. Usually bring-your-own-lunch and learn style but we are going digital as we all socially distance ourselves and flatten the curve.
Concrete is the second most widely used material on the planet – only after water. The production of concrete – or specifically its main ingredient, the Portland cement – is highly carbon intensive leading to concrete often dominating the embodied carbon impact of our buildings. In this LnL, we will discuss the basics of life-cycle assessment and introduce a ZGF-developed concrete LCA tool that can help project teams optimize the environmental impact of their concrete structures. Presented by Baha Sadreddin.
