BASF develops analysis program for greener concrete mixes

The North American Admixture Systems business of BASF Construction Chemicals has developed an innovative Eco-Efficiency Analysis program that quantifies both the economic and ecological benefits of Green Sense Concrete mixtures. Green Sense Concrete, which was introduced to the marketplace in September 2009, is a mix optimization service from BASF that results in new levels of concrete performance and sustainability.

Eco-Efficiency Analysis examines the environmental life cycle of Green Sense Concrete mixtures, beginning with the extraction of raw materials through the production of concrete. The analysis is based on six environmental impact categories, including energy consumption, emissions (air, soil, and water), toxicity potential, risk potential, raw material consumption, and land use.
