The article considers the properties of electrically conductive concrete based on Portland cement, current-conducting fillers and additives intended to be used for pedestrian zones and sidewalks. Electrically conductive concrete overlay can be very useful and effective for cleaning pedestrian paths and sidewalks in the city from snow and ice, for in this case there is no need for chemicals and polluting fillings. There has been carried out a chemical analysis of a number of current-conductive components of concrete aimed at determining the quantitative carbon content. Experimental samples of electrically conductive concrete with variable content of the current-conductive component have been made and their electrical conductivity and physical and mechanical properties have been determined.
