Cement, the typical binder in concrete, is responsible for approximately 2 2 Billion Metric Tonnes of CO 2 emissions every year The tailored reinforced concrete infrastructure project aims to reduce the overall cement content and associated embodied CO 2 of concrete elements whilst preserving their strength and durability performance This talk introduces tailored concrete in a durability context, with focus on improving performance in harsh exposure conditions without increasing cement content dramatically and summarises the work carried out so far in accelerated carbonation of layered concrete specimens
