Kajima Corporation’s Low-Carbon Concrete Revolution: 70% Reduction in CO2 Emissions with the Osaka-Kansai Expo Dome

Kajima introduces eco-friendly concrete technology for Osaka Expo Dome

Kajima Corporation recently announced an exciting 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. This innovative dome will be located in the West Gate Zone of the expo venue and will function as an exhibition space focused on environmental education.

Construction of the dome is set to begin in April and is expected to be completed by November 2024. The dome, constructed with reinforced concrete, will stand tall at 5.45 meters and have an oval shape with dimensions of 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.
