Congratulations to Jackson Civil Engineering for their ICE Carbon Champion recognition which celebrates their efforts to quantifiably reduce the carbon emissions on one of their projects we have collaborated with them on.
The precast concrete revetments – also known as Canewdon blocks – have been constructed using our Ultra-Low Carbon Concrete.
By using a cement-free alternative to traditional cement savings of up to 78% in embodied CO2 can be achieved compared to a conventional mix.
These particular Canewdon blocks are also reinforced using basalt rather than steel to further reduce the carbon footprint of the production.
They can be used to support and protect riverside and coastal embankment slopes, and are designed specifically to absorb wave energy to protect the land.
