The construction industry plays a central role in the design of our environment. Global population growth is associated with an increase in material resource consumption and CO2 emissions. Sustainable ideas and developments to reduce the need for resources and CO2 emissions as well as to increase the service life of buildings are becoming more important. Carbon Concrete Composite – C³ is made of a high-tensile reinforcement with carbon fibers and concrete is particularly convincing due to its high durability and long service life. In practice, its suitability has already been proven in numerous projects, so that carbon reinforced concrete is an integral part of research and application. The selected example illustrates the potential of carbon concrete construction. For this purpose, a material-related and systemic comparison of steel and carbon reinforced concrete is carried out using the example of a carbon reinforced concrete bridge.
