Back by popular demand, the Fresh Concrete series of talks showcase more of the innovative practice, and new types of concrete emerging to address climate mitigation and adaptation. 

Fresh Concrete is produced in partnership with The Concrete Centre, and is a platform for knowledge sharing for all construction professionals, bringing a fresh approach and fresh thinking for concrete.

Launched in 2020, the Innovandi Open Challenge is a global initiative which uniquely brings together tech start-ups and the world’s leading cement and concrete companies to help accelerate the deployment of new technologies to decarbonise the industry. In this live online event, Claude Lorea- Cement, Innovation and ESG Director at the GCCA, will present some of the recent successes and on-going activity with innovations linked to carbon capture use and storage and new binders for lower carbon concrete.

Further Fresh Concrete events are planned for 20th June and 25th July and details and booking for these will be available shortly.
