Abstract:Since 2005, the Technical committee of development of ecological and environmental assessment for environmentally friendly concrete (EFC) has investigated the efforts made by the industry to mitigate the environmental impact with respect to environmentally friendly concrete, normal concrete, and other durable goods. Based on the investigation, the committee proposed a comprehensive assessment method for the benefit that is provided by environmentally friendly concrete over time. The assessment method and indices are expected to serve as useful guidelines for adopting environmentally friendly concrete for actual construction and help promote the use of EFC. This paper outlines the achievements of the committee activities.
