Bio-Cement | Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - Spain | Creative Business | Scoop.it

The Structural Technology Group has developed and patented a type of biological concrete that supports the natural, accelerated growth of pigmented organisms.

Massimiliano Cammuso's insight:


Without any doubt the "Green Economy" will always have more market share. People are increasing sensitivity to issues related to quality of life, environmental and social sustainability.


One of the primary aspects linked to the growth of the number of inhabitants of this world shall be given by the construction of new housing that must comply with these "new" green trends.


News these days comes from Spain, a concrete company that has created the first "green" concrete. This new constructive material, has the property to absorb Co2 as it contains microorganisms that naturally absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. It can also absorb solar radiation, helping to regulate temperature inside the building.


For now, the only problem is the colour, not really nice.
