Giatec® Scientific Inc., world leader in concrete testing technologies, is pleased to announce the 2nd Annual Net Zero Construction Conference will be taking place on March 10th, 2022. After a resounding success last year, this year’s event is set to surpass its own record.  

This one-day conference will bring together top pioneers and subject matter experts to present innovations that are paving the way for a net-zero future. Leaders like Kiewit, Procore, and PCA will join in a discussion about sustainable construction, concrete, and technology. Topics to be covered include: 

  • Improving Performance of Concrete for Sustainable Infrastructure with Kiewit Engineering Group’s Engineering Manager, Oscar Antommattei.  
  • Mapping The Emergence and Diffusion of GHG Mitigation Policies in The Pavement Sector Through the Lens of Life Cycle Assessment with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Research Affiliate, Hessam Azarijafari.

The Net Zero Construction Conference would like to thank US Concrete, Concrete Sustainability Council, and Sustainable Development Technology Canada for their sponsorship in making this event possible.  

“Every year, 20 billion tons (10 billion cubic yards) of concrete is produced globally, which translates to approximately 2 billion tons of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions, 8% of global CO2 pollution,” said Pouria Ghods, co-founder and CEO of Giatec Scientific Inc. “The Net Zero Construction Conference calls builders, designers, policymakers, and product manufacturers to discussion and action as they share predictions, innovations, and solutions that are driving sustainable construction forward.”  

As part of Giatec’s commitment to sustainability, the company has partnered with One Tree Planted to plant 100 trees in recognition of each speaker, for a total of 1,500 new trees. Join the conversation on March 10th. Share your experiences and learn about the trends and technologies that are paving the way for our net-zero future.
