ABOUT

The Concrete Sustainability Hub (CSHub) is a research center at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), which was established in collaboration with the Portland Cement Association (PCA) and the Ready Mixed Concrete (RMC) Research and Education Foundation. The Hub was founded with the mission of accelerating emerging breakthroughs in concrete science and transferring the best available data into engineering practices. The interdisciplinary team of researchers brings together leaders from academia, industry, and government to facilitate the transfer of knowledge by aligning world-leading research with end-user needs.

CSHub researchers are investigating concrete from the nanoscale up to address the sustainability and environmental implications of the production and use of the material. Their research also aims to fine-tune the composition of concrete, reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of its production, and quantify its environmental impact and cost during the entire lifespan of an infrastructure or building project.
