edie recognises Decarbonising Precast Concrete as one of the “best green innovations”

A recent roundup of innovations that “could have significant impacts in the built environment” are featured in an edie website report which focuses on projects that help turn “green ambitions into actions”.

One such is the Decarbonising Precast Concrete, which will provide significant sustainability benefits, according to the article.

“Innovating to decarbonise the sector will… likely involve the use of recycled or other novel materials in tandem with low-carbon energy solutions for industrial processes scaling up.”

The Decarbonising Precast Concrete project will effectively tackle both these challenges at the same time.

PCE Ltd is working in partnership with consultants Akerlof, Accelar, Curtins and precast product manufacturer Forterra as part of an Innovate UK funded consortium to map the embodied carbon within the existing Ministry of Justice secure accommodation designs and to identify opportunities to reduce their actual carbon footprint in the future.
