Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) is a new form of concrete that is more environmentally friendly than typical concrete. What makes this stand out from traditional concrete is the way that it is cured. Instead of being left to cure naturally, this concrete is aerated in an autoclave. This new discovery could change the way concrete is produced worldwide.
In the long run, this form of concrete could help end users save a substantial amount on water and energy, even though high energy autoclaves are used in producing this concrete, manufacturers say it takes 50% less energy to make because of the lower Portland cement content by volume. Portland cement being one of the primary ingredients of concrete.
