The environmental interactions of concrete and other cement-based products encompasses both the influence of such materials on their environment, as well as the effects of the environment on the materials in time. There are a number of ways in which the environmental impact of concrete can be reduced. Employing sustainable energy sources such as municipal solid waste or waste wood or paper, increasing the durability of concrete structures by increasing its resistance to chloride attack, upgrading recycled concrete as building material and incorporating industrial by-product in concrete mixes are just a few examples. All these methods come together in more ways than one: the incineration of municipal wastes or biomass will generate materials which can be used as additions in concrete; the intelligent processing of construction and demolition waste will generate new materials for the production of clinker as well as recycled aggregates that can replace the natural gravel in concrete and the use of industrial by-products can contribute to the durability of concrete- both from the mechanical properties point of view, as well as from the perspective of resistance to aggressive environments.
