Corn, Wheat & Rice Trash Make Concrete Stronger, Kansas State says
Going along with the initiatives towards alternative fuels, engineers at Kansas State University have developed a method by which to utilize waste products of biofuels to strengthen concrete. Another positive from recycling this debris is the smaller carbon footprint left behind. Concrete is one of the world’s most-used industrial materials, providing an urgency and opportunity to make it greener. Waste products of agriculture such as corn stover, wheat straw, and rice straw are being applied to replace Portland cement.
