No matter how great your recipe, eventually your concrete will crack. Researchers in Norway are developing a method for mixing bacteria in with batches to activate when water enters cracks. Then the bacteria will produce limestone to seal gaps.
Carbon can lead to thinner designs
Carbon reinforced concrete is sure to be a game changer as the technology becomes more widespread. The material is lightweight and more durable than steel – not to mention its all-around strength. With its space-saving properties compared to reinforced alternatives, we will probably be seeing large infrastructures take advantage of this technology.
