[VIDEO] Topic Tuesday: Is bio-based becoming a consideration in construction industry?

Posted by Mats Hjørnevik on 4. January 2019

We rely on well-proven construction technologies wherever we move around. The construction technologies have been developed for decades to make sure that we have long-living and safe infrastructure and buildings around us. But in a world moving in increasing speed towards more emphasis on lowering emissions and waste, how is the construction industry affected? And are there any ready-made bio-based solutions available?

In this Topic Tuesday our research scientist Harrison Chr. Gallantree-Smith gives us an historical overview of the construction business and its use of admixtures. We also discuss where the industry should head and what solutions it should look into.
