Another big advantage is that 40-50% less maintenance of concrete is required. This results in lower life cycle costs.
Furthermore, self-healing concrete also has an advantage for the environment because it ensures a reduction of up to 30-50% of the CO2 footprint. In this way it contributes to a more sustainable world.
Finally, larger crack widths can be allowed in new designs. As a result, shrinkage reinforcement can be reduced and CO2 emissions and costs are reduced.
