Concrete is made locally and only in the quantities needed for each project, making it one of the most resource-efficient materials you can use. Concrete can be made with waste byproducts, which reduces the consumption of raw materials. The predominant raw material for the cement in concrete is limestone, the most abundant mineral on earth. Concrete can also be made with fly ash, slag cement, and silica fume, all waste byproducts from power plants, steel mills, and other manufacturing facilities. Concrete floors can incorporate recycled products, such as crushed glass, bits of recycled plastic, marble chips and metal shavings. Concrete itself can also be recycled at the end of its long service life the concrete can be crushed and recycled into aggregate for use in new concrete pavements or as backfill or road base.
Installing a concrete patio rather than a wood deck saves lumber and eliminates the need for regular maintenance with solvent-based wood stains and sealers. Because of their light color, concrete slabs also have higher light reflectivity than asphalt pavements, reducing urban heat-island effects.
