Concrete that Is More Porous

It’s a range of products to provide sustainable solutions for the construction, looking for durability, low environmental impact, energy savings and few leftovers, using recycled materials and cements with lower CO2 emissions and lower utilization of non-renewable resources in their manufacture. Concrete sustainable and compatible * concrete of high strength, which allows structures to be more slender, with great durability and low maintenance, decrease the necessary volume of more sustainable materials. * Porous concrete, to control water courses, recover rainwater for reuse. * Lightweight concrete, provides adequate thermal insulation, decreasing the energy consumption for air conditioning, greater sustainability. * Concrete high strength, resistant to aggressive media, prolongs the life cycle of the structure. * Concrete filling density controlled to fills and pavement subbases avoiding the use of teams of high energy consumption, more sustainable… Sustainability.

Attention in the production provided with separate of raw material grinding cement producing plants are more sustainable because they allow producing cements bespoke, tailored to the technical needs of each application, enabling designs that reduce the carbon footprint and the use of non-renewable resources. Also imposed the concrete made with recovery of water plants and aggregates, they reduce the exploitation and consumption of non-renewable natural resources are reused where added from hearing concretes of works, avoid that they become a waste of work. And as a greater intake of sustainability is also reused water coming from the washing of aggregates, pumps and trucks hormigoneros. Replacement of cement for greater sustainability specific products that allow you to replace the cement clinker with mineral additions active coming from other industries, with the consequent reduction of up to 50% in CO2 emissions with respect to conventional products. High reducing power of water additives are used for the elaboration of high strength concretes, which makes it more sustainable by reducing the content of cement.

Remember that the sustainable construction depends on the efficient behavior of the project as such, of the opportunities of construction and specifications requiring materials, in addition to constructive practices. Buyers, builders, practitioners should make a sustainable contribution, respect the rules of good art relating to the concrete, give priority to the providers of concrete that are evolving in compatible with the environment and more sustainable development practices. Instruct staff to avoid pouring the excess of concrete work, allowing for the concrete has not downloaded in the same return to plant concrete mixer for further treatment. Ask for the amount of concrete strictly necessary to complete the tasks, for the purposes of reducing the generation of wastes of work. Optimize orders of concrete in order to use the fewest number of truck trips hopper or hormigoneros to work. Given that the concrete is a material that increases their resistance over time, it is advisable to consider from design features resistors obtained at older ages at 28 days, such as 56 days or 90 days in order to optimize the content of cement.
