Kajima Corporation Pioneers Low-Carbon Concrete for Sustainable Expo Dome Construction

Kajima introduces eco-friendly concrete technology for Osaka Expo Dome

Kajima Corporation has announced a pioneering development in reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions for the construction of a concrete dome that will be part of the 2025 Osaka-Kansai Expo. The company plans to utilize a low-carbon concrete technology that can cut emissions by 70% compared to traditional construction methods.

The dome, located in the West Gate Zone of the expo venue, will serve as an exhibition space focused on environmental education. Construction is set to begin in April and should be completed by November 2024. The dome, constructed with reinforced concrete, will stand at a height of 5.45 meters and have an oval shape measuring 23 by 18 meters.

Through the use of low-carbon concrete and technology that captures CO2 during production, Kajima aims to achieve a significant reduction in CO2 emissions. Japan 2 Earth offers more details on the trial construction of this innovative dome and the potential of the technology to lower emissions in the construction industry.
