Sustainable Construction Industry Innovations 

It’s time for companies and world leaders to step up and follow the footsteps of the people behind these sustainable construction industry innovations.

These sustainable construction industry innovations do not only aim to lessen the workload of engineers and workers on the site. As the world is leaning to a sustainable and greener future, start-up companies and research groups are exerting efforts to produce high-caliber and relevant innovations to help lessen the impact of climate change.

 

It is important for construction leaders to bear in mind that the industry is not solely about being able to construct strong buildings. More than cost-efficiency, environmental impact should not be taken for granted. It’s time for them to step up and follow the footsteps of the people behind these sustainable construction industry innovations.



Self-healing concrete 

  

 

One of the major problems that should be addressed using sustainable construction industry innovations is cement cracking. Not only that it’s costly, but replacing cement over and over is also one of the major contributors of harmful carbon emissions, which shares about 7 percent of the world’s total emissions. Fortunately, a group of researchers at Bath University are currently looking into the possibility of introducing a self-healing concrete in the market. When water is poured, the bacteria in the concrete mix will germinate, producing limestone that will clog the cracks. This will prevent oxygen from entering, avoiding the steel reinforcement from corroding.
