Ferrock - A Carbon Negative Sustainable Concrete : A Review

Abstract Cement industry further going to grow at high speed with Government of India giving boost to infrastructure projects and housing facilities. As per the World business council for sustainable development (WBCSD, 2005) the cement industry produces 5% of global man-made carbon dioxide, a major gas contributing to climate change and responsible for global warming. A product called Ferrock was created as a result, concentrating on the reduction of carbon emissions as well as the utilization of waste materials for a better environment. This study examines this product that moves in the direction of waste reduction and carbon neutrality. It demonstrates the most effective use of iron ore waste powder obtained during the mining process, which is often dumped outside of the mines and causes air pollution, health risks, and bigger area use. By having a strength-gaining mechanism that is unlike cement's and unique among cement supplements, the product indirectly lowers the carbon dioxide discharged into the atmosphere. For greater strength in terms of compression and tensile strengths and to achieve desired qualities, ferrock is subjected to a curing process that includes carbonation and air curing over a range of days. Because it uses waste effectively and has a negative carbon footprint, ferrock is a more promising environmentally friendly binding material.
