Advanced Materials for Sustainable Infrastructure Development: Green and Low Carbon Cementitious Materials for Sustainability
Date : 5 - 10 Aug 2018
Venue : HKUST Jockey Club Institute for Advanced Study, Lo Ka Chung Building, Lee Shau Kee Campus, HKUST


The energy consumption of buildings is about 25 to 40% of the total energy consumption of the whole society. Hence, it is important to make buildings energy efficient to achieve the sustainability of the world. The energy efficiency of buildings depends largely on the material employed. With sustainable materials, the ability of future generations to meet their needs will not be compromised by the construction and operation of buildings.

Cement is the largest manufactured product on Earth by mass. Combined with water and mineral aggregates it forms cement-based materials. This conference will focus on the information exchange on these new developments in the sustainable cementitious material as well as the close collaboration among the conference participants in the future. The topics of the conference will cover both basic research and practical application of sustainable cementitious materials for sustainable energy effective buildings.
