Concrete is the most widely used material in construction. But traditional concrete is not environmentally-friendly as it requires the addition of cement, which generates carbon dioxide - a greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming.
Gammon Green Concrete ("GGC"), part of our high-performance concrete family, has been developed to minimise its carbon footprint, increase durability and satisfy a variety of construction needs. Compared with conventional concrete mixes, the cement content of Gammon Green Concrete is typically 10% lower.
GGC is designed to optimise the packing density of solid particles, including cementitious materials and aggregates, so that the least amount of cementitious materials are used. Supplementary cementitious materials (essentially waste from the generation of electrical power or other manufacturing processes) are also added to further reduce the amount of cement content.
