Global warming is one of the big issues all over the world.  Continued global warming could bring a series of damaging effects.  Many countries are now pursuing a broad range of strategies to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases, such as reducing the vehicle use, development of renewable energy etc.  Minimize the use of cement is one the method to reduce the emission of carbon dioxide.  Comparing the concrete volume used between Reinforced Earth Wall and traditional R.C. wall, Reinforced Earth Wall is an environmental friendly and more economical solution with less concrete consumption. Apart from this, the carbon dioxide emission can be reduced by minimizing the cement ratio in concrete.
