Smarter, Better, Faster, Stronger: New Materials for the Construction Industry
If concrete were a country, it would rank third in emissions behind China and the United States. Decarbonizing heavy industry is challenging due to high energy needs, the sunk costs of long-lived equipment and a lack of scalable alternative materials. How can new materials and processes, paired with machine learning and artificial intelligence, help achieve net-zero carbon emissions? What policies and precompetitive collaboration are most urgently needed to decarbonize the construction sector?
