About This Course:
This learning program provides design professionals an overview of the means and methods of concrete recycling, and applications of the re-used concrete in green constructions. It also offers necessary knowledge to make informed decisions regarding the re-use of concrete. As the most-used building material, design professionals can make a meaningful environmental impact by choosing sustainable alternatives to conventional concrete.
Learning Objective 1
Learners will understand the definition of green concrete and identify the key differences in the generation of green concrete versus conventional concrete, and how the carbon footprint can be reduced as compared to using the conventional concrete.
Learning Objective 2
Learners will understand the cost implications and environmental impacts by taking into account the sustainability of the green concrete, the production process, transportation, energy usage, carbon emissions and durability.
Learning Objective 3
The learners will understand the green alternatives to conventional concrete and explore applications of green concrete.
Learning Objective 4
Learners will be able to describe how concrete can be recycled and re-used in various applications. Also, the environmental and health benefits of green concrete applications will be examined.
