Graphene makes concrete stronger and greener
We’re constantly looking for innovative ways to improve the Springwise experience, and so we’re now introducing BeeLine Reader, a new technology that helps you read more quickly and efficiently. To learn more about BeeLine Reader, an award-winning startup funded by Intel Capital, see BeeLineReader.com.
As the world calls for more eco-friendly construction, innovation has been enabling this cause. We have seen the development of a more environmentally-friendly version of concrete, Finite. This material uses desert sand to replace the traditional concrete binder, reducing its carbon footprint. Researchers have also found a way to improve concrete’s performance. By infusing concrete with fibres from recycled tyres, scientists were able to create a stronger version of concrete and prevent it from cracking. And now, scientists at Exeter University have managed to find a way to integrate graphene into concrete, resulting in a greener and sturdier concrete.
