Developing alternative concrete materials to protect the environment

Narayanan Neithalath is one of the researchers interviewed on a national PBS News Hour program on efforts of inventors and engineers to make cement and concrete that has a much smaller carbon footprint. With support from the National Science Foundation, Neithalath and his team in the Laboratory for the Science of Sustainable Infrastructure Materials have made progress in developing multi-functional materials that could offer more environmentally sustainable forms of binders for concrete.
