Decreasing the emissions of CO2 that come from vehicle exhaust, especially in car parking and tunnels, is so vital. CO2 emissions cause corrosion to a reinforcement of concrete. Thus, there is a need to provide a layer that protects the reinforcement from the reach of this harmful gas. This work goals to investigate the efficiency of using board units from Pozzolime concrete and pervious concrete to sequestrate CO2 from the environment and then to convert it into calcium carbonate inside the concrete. The units have dimensions of (200×400×40±5). All specimens were cured in a water tank after about 48 hours after casting. Then paint the sample from all surfaces (three layers) excluding the top surface. The pervious concrete and Pozzolime specimens, at age of 28 days, were put in the chamber, then the gas was supplied to the chamber with concentrations of 15%, 25%, and 50 %, for 24 hours. The efficiency was evaluated through carbonation depth, CO2-uptake, and weight change. The results showed that the maximum CO2 uptake was recorded at the age of 28 days for Pozzolime concrete when exposed to 50% of CO2 concentration

The porous concrete applications and the process of production in different ways depending on the replacement of fine or coarse aggregate components of research important topics, The study dealt with production pervious concrete by depending on normal concrete by removing fine aggregate by four percentage by weight (25%, 50%, 75%, 100%), as was the work of trail mixtures of concrete for a reference mix of were depended mixture the weight [1:1.5:3] with a ratio (W/C) is equal to (0.40), which recorded the highest compressive strength of age (7) days, by the results tests show that the increased rate of removal of fine aggregate contributed to reduce the strength and density with the increase in porosity and permeability and absorption, as less density obtained is (1756.2)kg/m3 remove the fine aggregate by (100%), which gives less strength to compressive (14.28)MPa and the highest value for porosity (24.81%), as were better strength to compressive, splitting tensile, and bending are (36.77MPa, 4.28MPa, 4.4MPa), respectively to the proportion of removing fine aggregate (25%) compared to the reference mixture.
