Russian startup company renca recycles industrial waste into 3d printable cement
Russian construction company Renca, has developed an eco-friendly cement for 3D printing. According to the manufacturers, production of the material, known as géobéton (geoconcrete or geocement), reduces carbon dioxide emissions by up to 90% when compared to the traditional mode of making cement. By using recycled materials, the material also creates at least 60% less impact on the environment than its Portland counterpart.
The hope is to use the material to 3D print buildings, particularly in Dubai – a city that is aiming to 3D print 25% of its buildings by the year 2030.
