Humes provides carbon-neutral cement culverts for Australian freight network

The concrete structures will save more than 7,250 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions, equivalent to removing about 1,350 vehicles off the road for a year

Humes has provided Inland Rail with 22,625 tonnes of carbon-neutral precast concrete culverts.

These concrete structures will save over 7,250 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions, the equivalent of removing about 1,350 vehicles from the road for a year or equal to the total energy consumption of 1,028 Australian homes for a year, including all heating, cooling, cooking, hot water, appliances and lighting.

The company says the carbon footprint of the products were reduced using supplementary cementitious material with the remaining emissions neutralised through certified carbon offsets.
