First IGCMAT Paper and Presentation


The First International Conference on Grand Challenges in Construction Materials (IGCMAT) was held at the University of California in Los Angeles, on the 17th and 18th of March, 2016. The conference assembled academic and industry researchers to identify and discuss the “Grand Challenges” in construction materials, and potential solutions to consider.

Sean Monkman, CarbonCure VP of Technology Development, attended and shared a presentation entitled “Using CO2 to Reduce the Carbon Footprint of Concrete Production”. The work contextualized the potential to use the company’s ready mixed concrete technology to improve concrete strength and thereby optimize mix designs to use cement more efficiently.
