 The process of raising sunken concrete slabs through the use of hydraulic pressure injection where a grout, or other base material, creates a new sub-base by filling voids beneath concrete slabs and hydraulically raising the sunken slab back to grade  Environmentally responsible application  Reuse existing slabs  Limestone material is natural, non-toxic Definition


 Climate change  Global warming, GHGs, CO2, melting icecaps  Energy  Clean vs. dirty, renewable, biofuels, petroleum & coal  Waste  Landfills, “disposable” culture, water bottles Source: www.webecoist.com

 Carbon footprint - effect you have on climate in terms of the total amount of greenhouse gases you produce throughout your life  Burning fossil fuels for electricity, heating and transportation etc.  Average American is responsible for 20 tons of carbon dioxide emissions each year  Far greater per capita number than that of any other industrialized country  US accounts for more than 20% of the world's total greenhouse gas emissions Source: www.carbonfootprint.com

 Carbon dioxide (CO2) has accumulated the most in the atmosphere and is presently having the greatest cumulative warming effect on our planet  CO2 is 85% of all worldwide emissions  Other gases include: Methane, nitrous oxide, CFCs, tropospheric ozone  CO2 in atmosphere increased 30% since pre-industrial times  Human sources of CO2 primarily includes burning of fossil fuels (coal, oil, and natural gas) & deforestation  Directly affecting climate change and energy Source: www.epa.gov, www.safeclimate.net

18% Commercial Bldgs 9.75% 21% Residential Bldgs 56% 25% 26% 19% Transportation Industry 35% United States Other G7 countries  10% of the world’s energy is consumed in the Rest of the world manufacture and use of US homes and buildings  U.S. buildings use three times more energy than similar buildings in similar climates in Europe Source: www.cement.org

 Cement is an ingredient of concrete  Four elements used for manufacture: calcium, silicon, aluminum, and iron  Concrete includes cement, water, sand, and gravel or crushed stone  Cement is the “glue” that holds the mix together  Cement comprises only a portion of concrete Source: www.cement.org

 Concrete is the most widely used building material on the planet  Second most used material in the world behind water  Easy-to-use and versatile  Abundant and readily available  Cement is a significant contributor to worldwide GHG at almost 4% of total and 5% of total CO2 emissions  Top 12 cement-producing companies = 81% of world total  China largest = 43% of world total www.wri.org

Material Manufacturing  The average life of a Construction building shell is in the range of 50 to 100 years Occupancy  Sustainability practitioners advocate Maintenance the foundation and shell of new buildings Demolition should be designed for a service life of 200 to 300 years Disposal Source: www.cement.org,www.concretethinker.com

 Use “green” building materials whenever possible  Examine your exterior drainage regularly and maintain to ensure water is directed away from foundations and concrete areas  Caulk and seal all joints where water could enter  Consider concrete leveling as a preventative option to fill voids or to raise sunken slabs  Consider re-surfacing as an option to improve concrete surfaces

 Increased technology allows for “green” building products  Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED): Developing “Green Building” standard  Building design and development certification program to measure: Sustainability, Waste efficiency, Energy, Atmosphere, Materials, Resources, Innovation, Design Demonstrate the efficient use of energy, water and materials  Limit impact on outdoor environment  Provide a healthier indoor environment  Government, business quickly adapting 

 Greenhouse Gas Protocol  An accounting tool for quantifying emissions for businesses  The 2030 Blueprint  Green building rating systems, models such as Building for Environmental and Economic Sustainability (BEES)  EPA Energy Star  Programs that focus only on recycled content or renewable resources  Cementitious materials
