Life Cycle Assessment of E-Crete

Life Cycle Assessment of E-Crete

start2see has completed a life cycle study for Aurora Construction Materials (ACM) in Melbourne, comparing the greenhouse gas emissions from E-Crete - a geopolymer based concrete product manufactured by ACM - with a reference concrete as defined by the Green Building Council of Australia.

Over the full life cycle (cradle-to-grave) E-Crete reduces greenhouse gas emissions by nearly two-thirds compared to traditional Portland cement concrete. The emissions reduction potential of E-Crete is fairly consistent (62-66% lower GHG emissions) within the studied range of 20 MPa - 40 MPa concrete strength grades.
