Despite the fact that during the production process Thio Material has to be heated up to 135Â°C before it can be handled, the process generally consumes much less energy than classical concrete production. During the production of Portland cement the clinker has to be heated up to 1450Â°C. Vitrified clay pipes require even more energy as temperatures higher than 1000Â°C are required.Â This results in a concrete product producing 100% of CO2 per ton more than compared with one ton of Thio Material and vitrified clay pipes producing up to 400% more COÂ² per produced ton of material.
