SCOPE AND CONTENTS

Contents

► Ordinary Portland cement (OPC) has high embodied energy arising from manufacturing. ► Carbon footprint of geopolymers, an alternative binder to OPC, was estimated. ► CO2-e of geopolymer concrete is 9% less than OPC: unlike past studies (26–80%). ► Key factors for high CO2-e of geopolymers: energy expended on alkali activators. ► Geopolymers need...
