Concrete is the most widely used man-made material on Earth, with an annual consumption of around 10 billion m³. However, its fabrication is characterized by total CO2 emissions amounting to around 5% of the worldwide anthropogenic GHG emissions.


NEW BELITE-YE’ELIMITE-FERRITE (BYF) CLASS OF LOW-CO2 BINDERS OFFERS:

ico home 30  lower carbon footprint

The ECO-Binder project aims to implement industrial R&D activities related to developing Belite-Ye’elimite-Ferrite (BYF) based low-CO2 binders and demonstrating the possibility of replacing Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) based concrete products with new ones based on the new Belite-Ye’elimite-Ferrite (BYF) technology. The new generation of concrete-based construction materials and prefabricated building envelope components are targeted to give a 30% lower carbon footprint, 20% better insulating performance and 15% lower cost than current solutions based on Portland cement.


THE NEW BUILDING ENVELOPE SOLUTIONS WILL INTEGRATE MULTIPLE FUNCTIONS IN A SINGLE PRODUCTPACKAGE:

Acoustic
insulation / absorption

Fire resistance

Within the ECO-binder project prefabricated concrete systems of different complexity and end-use will be installed in different climatic conditions for demonstration purposes. LCA will be performed to validate the construction materials sector’s progress in developing eco-sustainable products with comparable performance to traditional products.
