On one of our projects in central Oman, colleagues came up with a smart way of minimising concrete waste at the site and reducing energy consumption.
Instead of loading the concrete waste into trucks and transporting it long-distance to the approved waste disposal site, colleagues suggested crushing the concrete waste into smaller chunks and repurposing it on the site.
The crushed concrete was reused to build a vehicle impediment berm around the central processing facility. The berm was compacted to prevent it eroding from the wind.
By removing the need to transport the concrete to the disposal site, 103.33 tonnes of CO2 emissions were avoided.
