New Negative-Emission Construction Material Could Help Mitigate Climate Change and Improve Infrastructure
New Negative-Emission Construction Material Could Help Mitigate Climate Change and Improve Infrastructure.
Mitigating climate change is one of the biggest challenges facing the world’s population. Now, a team of researchers at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed an entirely new material that’s a low-cost, high-impact sustainable solution to address one of the largest contributors to climate change—concrete.
As published in the journal
, the research at WPI has led to the creation of a self-healing Enzymatic Construction Material (ECM), which the research team describes as a “living material” that “provides a pathway to repair or even replace [traditional] concrete in the future.”
