Innovation Alert: Living Concrete


This is an article about work that my favorite professor at CU Boulder has been doing. He’s created a way to use biology to make concrete that can regenerate and multiply. It would be really interesting to see how we could implement this in the design of retaining walls or pavement.


Additionally, I wonder about the imperviousness of the material since it contains bacteria and varieties of aggregate/sand mixtures.
