Comparing greenhouse gas emissions of Grocon’s Pixelcrete blends with other concrete blends.
Completion: August 2010
Grocon (Victoria Street)
This ISO 14040/14044:2006 compliant study compared the greenhouse gas emissions of Grocon’s Pixelcrete blends with other concrete blends of the same strength grade. The two Pixelcrete blends studied were found to have 37.6% (Pixelcrete Post Tension) and 48.9% (Pixelcrete Columns and Walls) lower greenhouse gas emissions than a benchmark mix. This study also investigated displacement effects due to increased demand for some of the raw materials utilised in the Pixelcrete blends.
