Innovations in Sustainable Concrete Mix Design

Author: Someshwar Sharma

Abstract: The concrete industry is undergoing a paradigm shift towards sustainability, driven by the imperative to reduce environmental impact and promote resource efficiency. This paper explores recent innovations in sustainable concrete mix design, focusing on the incorporation of recycled materials, supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs), and other eco-friendly additives. The objective is to assess the impact of these innovations on both the performance characteristics and environmental footprint of concrete. The paper includes detailed discussions, analyses, and tables presenting key findings.

Keywords: Sustainable concrete, Recycled materials, Supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs), Eco-friendly additives, Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), Concrete mix design, Environmental impact, Innovation in construction. Circular economy, Green building materials
