Effect of Zeolite in the Mechanical Properties of Concrete and its CO2 Absorption Characteristics to Form an Eco-Friendly Environment

Abstract

Rajnivas P, Freeda Christy C*, Selva Mugunthan A and Saravana Perumal M

Carbon dioxide is one of the major air pollutants into the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide is emitted more into the atmosphere because of combustion of fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) in cement production industry and many other industries and emissions from traffic congestions. Carbon-dioxide pollutes the air and the air pollution is the major threat faced by the present generation. Hence, there is a need to have an eco-friendly concrete which can absorb the carbon-dioxide from the atmosphere and reduces the air pollution. Therefore, a study has been carried out on the zeolite concrete for the enhancement of the mechanical properties and on the absorption of carbon sequestration in to the zeolite concrete.
