Issue of CO2 sequestraion in the carbonation process has become a crucial problem. This is due the fact, that construction and applied materials are analyzed in the terems of their total carbon footprint. Resutls of research on carbonation of SCC (Self-Compacting Concrete) C30/37 in the form of concrete rubble, in fraction 8 – 31,5 mm, kept for 56, 112 and 168 days have been presented in the paper. Samples were investigated with FTIR (Fourier Transformation Infrared Spectroscopy) analysis. Next, samples kept for 168 days were analyzed with thermal analysis TG/DTA (Thermogravimetric/Differential Thermal Analysis) to determine the amount of absorbed CO2. The obtained results were referred to the formula for the maximum theoretical CO2 uptake according to PN-EN 16757-07.

Keywords: Self-Compacting Concrete; CO2 sequestration; FTIR; TG/DTA; carbonation process.
