Green Concrete UAE 2015 Conference

Green Concrete UAE 2015 Conference

  Green Concrete UAE is a specialized conference addressing strategies and solutions in developing sustainable concrete to reduce carbon emissions and increase the lifecycle of future projects across the United Arab Emirates. This conference will take place on 12-13 October 2015, in Dubai, UAE.

Perfect timing for the UAE construction sector

Dubai Municipality initiated a circular mandating the use of sustainable concrete for all new projects, made compulsory as of April 1st2015, in order to reduce carbon emissions, and to strategically position the Emirates on the green building and urban planning scenes. Recent estimates have indicated that the mandatory switch to using green cement will add an extra forty years lifespan to buildings that use it and offer a cost saving of $52.3bn for the Dubai construction sector. With the increasing interest in carbon emissions reduction, the green materials market revenue for construction is estimated to reach $23bn by 2016 as per Frost & Sullivan. While Dubai is the first Emirate spearheading the green concrete initiative, Abu Dhabi Municipality has several projects mandating the use of green concrete. Sharjah Municipality has also shown interest in the use of green concrete to reduce carbon emissions and increase durability.   Green Concrete UAE 2015 will gather government representatives, developers, builders, engineering consultants, main contractors, admixture and ready-mix companies, precast concrete companies, cement suppliers and other industry stakeholders. Key themes to be discussed at Green ConcreteUAE: –          Regulatory updates and requirements.
