Cement and concrete (the most manufactured materials in the world) account today for about 8 percent of the world’s total carbon dioxide emissions. This is far more than, for example, the aviation industry. At the University of California in Los Angeles, attempts are now underway to produce a new more climate-smart version of concrete.
