    Abstract: The launching of the Sustainable Development Goals in 2015 has continually advanced the sustainability paradigm across all corners of the globe. While this has led to the fruition of inherent country policies and plans for Uganda, the country is still trailing below the desired rate of attaining SDGs by 2030. The commencement of this decade of acti... Show More

    Abstract: The purpose of this study is to assess the Embodied Energy (EE) and Carbon IV Oxide (CO2) emissions saving potentials of Corn Cob Ash (CCA) as partial replacement of Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) in concrete. Cement manufacture is energy intensive and contributes considerable amount of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere. Globally, Concrete is the m... Show More
