Skanska trials low carbon reinforced concrete

An industry-first low carbon reinforced concrete solution is being trialled on National Highways M42 Junction 6 improvement scheme. The trial, led by Skanska, in partnership with the National Composites Centre and funded by National Highways (NH), compares traditional steel reinforced concrete with a low carbon concrete reinforced with basalt fibre. The combination of the low carbon concrete and the replacement of the steel with a lightweight composite reinforcement dramatically reduces the carbon footprint by more than 50 percent.
