GCP Applied Technologies has revealed product solutions that address over 60% of actions outlined by the Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA) to commit to producing carbon neutral concrete by 2050.
With cement accounting for 8% of global man-made CO2 emissions, it is paramount to source solutions to improve sustainability. GCP recognises that options must also be cost efficient, and offers products that not only reduce carbon throughout the lifecycle of concrete, but reduce costs. In 2021, GCP’s cement additives and concrete admixtures reduced their customers’ CO2 emissions by an estimated 23 million t, equivalent to taking seven million cars off the road every day.
“This is a pivotal moment in the concrete and cement industry. Producers are under considerable pressure to change the way they produce cement and develop new approaches that are more sustainable. We are here to help them get there,” said GCP President & CEO Simon Bates. “Our solutions reduce waste and energy consumption through the entire cycle of concrete production while improving strength. GCP products enable plants to reduce their environmental footprint, while also saving them money.”
GCP’s products align with the GCCA 2050 Cement and Concrete Industry Roadmap for Net Zero Concrete, playing a key role in reducing CO2 and operational costs, in addition to extending the life of concrete structures. The company’s sustainability goal is to further enable cement and concrete producers to save 500 million tons of CO2 per year, therefore reducing over 1% of man-made CO2 emissions.
