Kajima Corporation Set to Revolutionize the Construction Industry with Low-Carbon Concrete Dome for Osaka-Kansai Expo

Kajima introduces eco-friendly concrete technology for Osaka Expo Dome

In a groundbreaking development, Kajima Corporation recently announced plans to construct a concrete dome for the 2025 Osaka-Kansai Expo using low-carbon concrete technology. The company aims to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) 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 of the dome is set to begin in April and is expected to be completed by November 2024. The dome, made with reinforced concrete, will have a height of 5.45 meters and 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 hopes to achieve a significant reduction in CO2 emissions.
