Concrete has a huge environmental footprint. Graphene could change that

Concrete has been described as the most destructive material on earth. It is the second most used substance in the world after water, with twice the use of steel, wood, plastic and aluminum combined.

To manufacture all this concrete, more than 4 billion tons of cement are produced annually. This is reported by the Chatham House think tankwhich causes about 8% of all CO2 emissions – more than what is caused by all trucks around the world.

Cement makers urgently need to reduce this footprint. Until meet the requirements of the Paris Agreement on climate change, the industry must reduce emissions minimum 16% by 2030. At the same time, the sector is facing growing demand due to rapid urbanization and population growth.

It’s an ominous problem. But engineers believe graphene offers a solution.

“Only 0.01% of the material is needed.

First isolated at the University of Manchester in 2004, Graphene’s 2D nature provides a unique combination of strength, flexibility, lightness and conductivity. These properties caught the attention of Nationwide Engineering, a British construction company.

The company’s landmark R&D subsidiary, NERD (Nationwide Engineering Research and Development), was tasked with developing the “wonder material” in a new additive: Concrete.
