Concrete is the most widely used building material in the world and one of its primary constituents ordinary portland cement accounts for approximately 7% of global CO2 emissions and approximately 1.5% in Canada. To meet the Government of Canada Roadmap to Net-Zero Carbon Concrete by 2050, numerous actions exist including concrete mixture optimization. This presentation will focus on the long-term durability performance alternatives to ordinary portland cement including portland limestone cement, high volume supplementary cementing mixtures, amongst others.
