Cosmic concrete and other materials for building in space
Is the most widely used building material on Earth—concrete—a good choice for building in space? Some researchers think so. We analyse the materials and challenges involved in achieving this science fiction goal.
We develop aggregates from concrete rubble able to capture CO2
At Sacyr Chile we are developing a new technology to improve recycled aggregates from concrete rubble from construction waste.
We create concrete with steel from end-of-life tires
Advantages include, cutting CO2, saving water, reducing the contamination of asphalt, and helping to preserve forests. In addition, each dose achieves better fiber distribution thanks to their smaller diameter and length.
We developed a new type of concrete in Chile using glass waste
Chile has launched a new example of circular economy applied to the creation of new building materials. This project consists of the development of a new type of concrete by recovering glass waste.
Gravity-defying geometry and matter
We inaugurate an emblematic building in Chile that simulates a complex geometric shape, making it look like it's floating
