Nanotechnology in construction industry

As we have discussed, nanotechnology has its tentacles in many of applications. In the Sri Lankan context, construction is not considered as a field where advance technologies such as nanotechnology could be applied, even though both here in Sri Lanka and in the world many researchers are involved in bringing the advantages of nanotechnology to construction. Concrete, one of the most used construction materials (made with cement as a binder), is considered the most carbon dioxide contributing material (material with the highest carbon footprint). Concrete production contributes five percent of the annual anthropogenic global carbon dioxide production, mainly because of the vast quantities used. Carbon dioxide contribution is mainly from the reactions occurring during the production of cement. There is already progress in improving properties on concrete at the nano-scale to address much of this problem – See more at: http://www.nation.lk/edition/free/item/30889-nanotechnology-in-construction-industry.html#sthash.RIeq1IJq.dpuf
