Join us on June 22, 10:00 AM PST To learn about Sustainability Solutions in the Concrete Industry
Randolph E. Kirchain, Ph.D. Co-Director of the Concrete Sustainability Hub, Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
. This webinar by the Concrete Sustainability Hub at MIT addresses the carbon footprint of the concrete industry. At the same time, achieving global sustainable development goals depends on the expansion of infrastructure and housing that depends upon concrete.
This presentation will discuss both critical strategies to reduce emissions from concrete production and cases where concrete application leads to emission reductions during infrastructure use.
Dr. Kirchain’s research and teaching aim to improve materials-technology decisions by characterizing the economic and environmental impact of those decisions. That impact may derive from changes in the performance of the products into which those materials are transformed and/or in the systems in which they are produced, used, and eventually discarded.
Dr. Kirchain has authored over 200 publications in refereed journals and conferences. He has been awarded the American Iron and Steel Institute’s Top Technical Achievement Award, the General Motors Technical Achievement Award, and the TMS Recycling Technology Award. Currently,
Dr. Kirchain serves as the co-director and interim Executive Director of the MIT Concrete Sustainability Hub.
