Environmental Impact Calculator

Input the volume of concrete into the form below. The form will automatically populate to show you an estimate of the amount of emissions, waste generation and the environmental benefits of concrete preservation vs. demolition.

To create a customized Preservation Impact Statement, first enter the volume of concrete into the form below, click the “Calculate” button then enter your Project Name and Location into the form. You can further customize the form by uploading a picture from your computer. Note: maximum image file size: 2MB or less.

Click the "Submit” button to generate your custom report. You can then use your web browser’s print function to save the report as a PDF or send it directly to your printer.

Material CO2 Emissions Units Reference
Normal concrete 0.13 kg CO2/kg Scrivener 2014
Steel 2.8 kg CO2/kg Scrivener 2014
1 m3 = 1.308 yd3
1 kg = 2.2 lbs
1 metric ton = 1.1 US ton

Disclaimer: Calculations are based on the following typical values

Concrete Density
English - 150 lb/ft3
Metric - 2400 kg/m3
Cement Content
600 lb/yd3
350 kg/m2

Note that these values are not direct equivalents and will lead to slight variations in calculated results
