Earth Friendly Concrete

Earth Friendly Concrete (EFC) / Geopolymer Concrete is a cement-free concrete which typically offers a 50% saving in embodied carbon compared to standard concrete mixes and helps to reduce the carbon footprint associated with concrete use in construction projects.

EFC uses GGBS and Fly ash and does not use Portland cement. It can be used in the same applications as traditional concrete. EFC has excellent mechanical and structural properties and offers the highest chemical protection, with low shrinkage rates and EFC has a low thermal gradient providing very low temperature rises in cast deep sections.

Applications

All applications where traditional concrete might be used such as, slabs, walls, columns, footings etc. traditional slip form paving including machine paving, deck units and tunnel segments in major infrastructure projects.

  • EFC has special advantage over traditional concrete in tunnel segment manufacture where early strength development is present as well as providing a high fire resistance.
  • It has been shown to perform better than traditional concrete in marine applications.

Benefits

  • Low CO2 concrete in comparison to conventional concretes.
  • High performance
    • Excellent mechanical / structural properties
    • Very good for chemical protection / resistance
    • Very low temperature rise, particularly for deep sections
    • Low shrinkage
    • High durability
    • Natural off-white colour
    • Blemish free off form finish
    • Good early strength development.
  • Low reaction and a lower corrosion rate than traditional concrete.
  • Helps with attaining BREAM rating.

Features

  • Performs better than traditional concrete in Marine situations with a high chloride resistance rate.
  • Aggregate proportions are typically the same as traditional concrete.
  • All commercial grades: 25 to 65 MPa compressive strength can be achieved.

EFC can be delivered by truck and can be placed by chute and pump like traditional concrete.

EFC Concrete is supplied by Capital Concrete from batching plants which are all third party accredited by QSRMC.
