New “Green Mix” concrete can achieve an increased strength of up to 30% more than normal concrete.

Researchers from the faculty of civil engineering in Malaysia have successfully developed an environment friendly concrete called “Green-Mix” concrete, thanks to the Government of Malaysia’s encouragement for the use of environmentally friendly materials in the construction of green buildings. 

 

This new green concrete has the following benefits:

– designed for strength and performance during service-life of buildings or structures;

– has lower cement/carbon footprint per unit of concrete produced;

– has potential for commercialization by providing developers and contractors with an alternative concrete that is environmental-friendly, in line with the National Green Technology Policy.
