Commission announces actions to make Europe's raw

1 Today the Commission presents an Action Plan on Critical Raw Materials the 2020 List of Critical Raw Materials and a foresight study on critical raw materials for strategic technologies and sectors from the 2030 and 2050 perspectives The Action Plan looks at the current and future challenges and proposes actions to reduce Europe's dependency on third countries diversifying supply from

7 Sustainable Construction Materials

Jul 11 2018Although concrete is a core component in homes public buildings and bridges it's not the most sustainable building material out there Commercial concrete production releases tons of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere every year contributing to

Is steel wood or concrete the most 'green' building material?

May 30 2016"Concrete has a huge task on its hand " Sumner says This single building material – the second-most consumed material on Earth after water – is responsible for between five and 10 per cent of all human-related greenhouse gases Most of these emissions result from the production of cement – a key component of concrete

SUSTAINABLE STEEL At the core of a green economy

work in EMS-registered production facilities (EMAS or ISO 14001) Steel recycling Over 22 billion tonnes of steel has been recycled worldwide since 1900 owing to steel's recyclability Material effi ciency 98% of the raw materials used to make crude steel are converted to products and by-products The industry's goal is zero waste

Environmental impact of concrete

The environmental impact of concrete its manufacture and applications are complex Some effects are harmful others welcome Many depend on circumstances A major component of concrete is cement which has its own environmental and social impacts and contributes largely to those of concrete The cement industry is one of the main producers of carbon dioxide a potent greenhouse gas
