Creativity at Lakehead University yields stronger concrete
A green cement additive that shows potential to significantly strengthen concrete and also reduce greenhouse gas emissions has been licensed to GreenCentre Canada by Lakehead University in Canada. The technology, developed by Lionel Catalan, Ph.D., and Stephen Kinrade, Ph.D., can potentially increase concrete strength by up to 40 percent and reduce the amount of Portland cement needed to make concrete. "This technology is exciting because it has the potential to create a better product for industry while also benefiting the environment," says Rui Resendes, Ph.D., executive director of GreenCentre Canada.
