Civil engineering is one of the sectors which cause considerable environmental impacts, on different aspects: energy consumption, CO2 emission and over-exploitation of natural resources. Concrete, the popular material in civil engineering, uses Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) as binder, but the cement manufacturing consumes high energy amounts and emits important CO2 gas to the atmosphere. The over-exploitation of the natural aggregates for the manufacturing of concrete (sand, gravel) causes serious environmental problems, especially the exploitation of river sand. Alternative construction materials which have less environmental impacts are the topic of different scientific researches.

The addition of graphene additive helps to reduce the amount of cement, increase compressive strength and tensile strength, thereby saving 30% of the material costs and protecting the environment.
