Concrete And Life Cycle Assessment Rediscover Concrete

LCAs seek to measure the environmental impacts associated with all stages of a product (e.g. concrete) or a project (e.g. a building or highway), from raw material extraction through to processing, transportation, use and disposal. For example, LCA studies have shown that depending on location and service life

Life-Cycle Management of Concrete Structures

Concept of Life-Cycle Management A concrete structure passes through different stages during its life, which implies that it is essential to coordinate the stages and to transfer important information from one stage to another in an appropriate form. LCM is an integrated concept to assist in activities managing the total life-cycle of structure based on management of each stage to ensure ...

Cleaner technologies in the life cycle of concrete products

Life Cycle of Concrete Products” (TESCOP) was to develop and test cost-effective cleaner technologies for the concrete industry. Based on life cycle inventories (LCI) and on political scenarios, i.e. a listing of all environmental impacts in the life cycle, and priority lists of environmental parameters, decisions on development of cleaner technologies have been made. Examples of cleaner ...
