Highlight Seminar: Karen Scrivener, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne
ABSTRACT Concrete is the most used material in the world accounting for around half of everything human beings produce each year. Although it is a materials with low intrinsic environmental impact, the colossal volume produced means that it accounts for some 5-8% of anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Demand is likely to double by 2050 due to […]
