Green Sense®

  1. 1. Green Sense® ConcreteBuilding a SustainableConcrete Industry
  2. 2. Most of the focus of our industry today is on the economy and sustainability. These issues will continue to challenge and shape our industry. At BASF, we are committed to providing you with solutions to both your economic and ecological challenges.
  3. 3. Concrete is considered a green material,however threats to the concrete industryinclude: Cement Production Carbon Emissions Energy Intensity/Usage Natural Resource Depletion Health – noise, particulate emission, etc. Water Quality Green Sense® Concrete is environmentally friendly:  Lowers energy demands, and CO2 emissions and other environmental impacts per unit volume of concrete produced.  Less by-product materials targeted for landfill.  Lower overall environmental impact.
  4. 4. Green Sense® Concrete – Advanced Concrete Mix Optimizationan environmentally friendly,cost-effective concrete mix  Uses recycled materialsoptimization service in which  Glenium® highrange water-reducingsupplementary cementitious admixturematerials and non-cementitious fillers are used  Rheotec® Z 60 workability retainingwith BASF chemical admixtureadmixtures to meet or  attains desired setting characteristics andexceed performance targets. strength  Improves ease of constructability  Increases the service-life/ durability of structures  Reduces the cost per yard to the concrete producer and it’s ecological and economical !!!
  5. 5. Recycled Materials Examples  Slag CementCommon  Fly Ash (Type F or C)  Limestone Fines  Aggregate Fines  Non Spec. Silica Fume Fly ash Slag  Aged Cement Kiln DustOther Materials  Rice Husk Ash  Burnt Oil Shale Fines  Glass Powder  Metakaolin Limestone fines Granite fines
