Concrete the Sleeping Giant

The speaker will discuss industry aspirations for carbon footprint reductions over the next 25 years and illuminate some of the technologies being developed to address this issue. Starting with the historical context of how the Romans developed the first formulations of concrete and continuing to the advent of modern concrete which has changed little since the invention of Portland Cement in 1824, attendees will learn about the out-sized carbon footprint connected to concrete and why this is such a big deal.
