Green Concrete - Sustainable Construction Material Example

Environmental Benefits of a One Mile, Two Lane Roadway Constructed With ekkomaxx™ Green Low Carbon Concrete In Place of Portland Cement Concrete (12 foot lane widths with 8 feet shoulders)

Total concrete required = approximately 14,500 yds.3

  • Eliminates 4,742 tons of CO2 (greenhouse gas)
  • Diverts 4,750 tons of fly ash from landfills
  • Reduces water demand by 261,000 gallons
    (ekkomaxx™ uses 50% less mix water)
  • Preserves 78 tons of virgin mineral resources
  • Utilizes rapidly renewable resources
  • Saves 4,827 barrels of crude oil

ekkomaxx™ green cement concrete provides category leading sustainability as validated by Environmental Product Declarations (EPD's) and the concrete Product Category Rule (PCR) recently released by the Carbon Leadership Forum. However, no existing standard is equipped to measure and recognize the profound number of sustainability benefits offered by CERATECH's green cements and concretes. Whether one references LEED 3.0, 4.0, the concrete PCR, the 2030 Challenge, Executive Orders 13514, or 13423, ekkomaxx™ exceeds them all.

This leadership in sustainability is defined by class leading CO2 greenhouse gas reduction, water & virgin resource preservation, energy & landfill savings, all combined with a significant increase in concrete durability & service life.
