As a society, we are doing all we can to become as eco-friendly as we possibly can. People were much more aware of how the world works these days, and we are more conscious of the environment. This has led to people doing their best to look after the planet and try to become as environmentally-friendly as possible.
So, we are seeing different areas of society do as much as possible to be a little more eco-friendly. In the future, we should be moving more towards caring for the environment and going greener. You are probably wholly aware of what you can do to go green at home, but there are also plenty of other areas that are developing that you may not be aware of yet.
For instance, we bet you didn’t know that eco-friendly concrete has been created! Yes, this is just as amazing as it sounds, and it could well set a couple of precedents for the future. Richard Riman and his team invented an energy efficient technology that has allowed them to create eco-friendly concrete, metals, polymers, and ceramics.
The way the technology works is that it allows concrete to store carbon dioxide. The unprecedented development has allowed us to create multiple materials for usage in an array of environmentally sound ways. Anything that can reduce our carbon footprint is worth trying, and that’s why this is such a positive development for us as a society.
One thing is for sure, this development has produced concrete with great strength and durability, and cuts a lot of the costs generally associated with concrete. Our carbon footprint can be reduced by up to a staggering 70%, and it’s not just concrete! The products also include concrete-based products, such as building blocks and roof tiles.
Riman has taken this and run with it, even creating a new startup to focus on other areas of industry. For example, the company is called RRTC Inc., and they are developing eco-friendly materials for the electronic, biomedical, pharmaceutical, agricultural, and textile industries. This could really go a long way to helping improve and reduce our carbon footprint.
