In search of greener concrete

 An EU-funded project develops a formula for more eco-friendly concrete


An EU-funded project, EnCoRe, is developing a method to produce more eco-friendly concrete by enriching it with recycled industrial fibres instead of adding new components.

The goal of the project is to create more sustainable concrete while preserving its quality and resilience.

The EnCoRe consortium hopes that their research will soon prove the industrial viability of more eco-friendly concrete.
