A5223_S3732 cost benefits analysis (2).pdf (276.4 KB)
I am working with the OpenAir Collective on a low-carbon concrete bill in NJ (based on NY’s LECCLA bill) and one of the key legislators that we need support from has asked for a cost-benefit analysis. I reached out to numerous vendors for data for calculating rough estimates for cost per ton of CO2 avoided or reduced (attached). However, this does not take into account lifecycle cost savings from increased durability.
Does anyone have a short, legislator-friendly document or something general that I could quote to give to a legislator about the cost or savings of using low-carbon concrete? I know there are a lot of variables that are hard to boil down to a simple statement.
I looked in the MIT CSHub web site for cost-related resources. I found one paper on price projection modeling, not really what I was looking for.
