The News Links section this week concludes with the third of a trifecta of research-oriented articles. A new concrete material made from biobased construction materials such as high-lignin residue yielded a stronger product with fewer carbon emissions, according to Kyle Riding, an assistant professor of civil engineering at Kansas State University. Concrete use worldwide totals 7 billion cubic meters per year, and using biobased technology to create stronger concrete on a commercial level is possible because "the technology is known," Riding said.
