CO2 Concrete

Enhanced CO2 concrete

Researchers Vivian Tam (School of Built Environment) (opens in a new window) and Khoa Le (School of Engineering) (opens in a new window) have developed a recycled concrete product which is enhanced through pressurised carbon dioxide (CO2).

A preliminary application has been using this material ion biosecurity structures for the Hawkesbury Farm (e.g. structures for cleaning boots) associated with visitors coming onto the site for events such as the Unischool Steer Challenge.

With scaling up of production, the CO2 concrete has also been used more more structural features such as concrete pads around stock water troughs, and monitoring of these applications.
