Measure CO2 emissions for buildings caused by ready-mix concrete.

Library of Challenges

Short description: One of the most important building materials is concrete. Worldwide it is responsible for almost 8% of CO2 emission. While most solutions focus on production, the end user is almost never aware of it. Goal is to establish sensitivity by rethinking processes and starting at the customer.

Market potential: With an European market of over 250 Mio. m³ ready-mix concrete per year, a potential solution could revolutionize the awareness of customers and be attached to domestic documentation requirements.

Timing: With the upcoming moving to digital concrete ordering and digital delivery notes, a solution to this challenge should come along within the next two years. Market adoption might take longer.

Desired result: The result should help to easily provide a detailed analysis of all building parts of any construction project and their contribution to CO2 emissions of the used ready-mix concrete. Collected data can be used for more comprehensive reports.

Information on challenge owner: Mid-size SME (50-259 staff).

Market presence of challenge owner: Active in several countries.

Keywords: Ready-mix concrete; Construction services; Environment Management Systems & Documental Management Systems; User Interfaces, Usability; Artificial Intelligence (AI)
