Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Professor Alex Moseson of Philadelphia's Drexel University is developing a new recipe for a more eco-friendly cement that uses industrial waste such as soda ash. "The beauty of it is we can take things that don’t need to go through a kiln in order to make them cement," Moseson said. The new mixture is said to be similar to the recipe used to build pyramids, symbolic of the product's strength.
