Is Concrete Sustainable? Here’s Why We Need To Talk

2020-1-15  Portland cement is a key component of almost all modern concrete, accounting for more than 95% of the cement market. Concrete is typically made up of 41% crushed rock, 26% sand, 16% water, 11% portland cement, and 6% entrained air. But, despite being made from natural materials, this material carries a heavy footprint. The eco issues with concrete
