Tarmac poll

Question mark

Fact 14

Low embodied energy…

Like all concrete, during its lifetime Precast concrete will effectively re-absorb the equivalent amount of energy (carbon dioxide) that was used to create it I the first place! What’s more, using Precast doesn’t require any re-mineralisation (the process of rejuvenating barren soils after they have been intensely forested).
