How Africa is pioneering the development of green concrete
Concrete is the most widely used building material in the world: Many millions of tons of concrete are used every year.
But it has its downsides: Up to 8% of the world's CO2 comes from the production of concrete.
If the concrete industry were a country, it would be the third largest emitter of CO2 after China and the USA.
Researchers are working on sustainable solutions in various projects. A German-African cooperation at BAM has now developed a climate-friendly alternative that is just as resilient and safe as conventional concrete.
