Australian universities create method for sustainably upcycling old concrete


Researchers from Flinders University and The University of Melbourne are working on a method to upcycle old broken concrete into new, sustainable concrete using graphene as a key ingredient. This approach is seen as a more sustainable method for managing construction and demolition waste, which is expected to reach nearly 2.6 billion tons globally by 2030. The use of graphene, a secret ingredient in a weak solution, enhances the quality, performance, and workability of recycled concrete aggregates, offering a more environmentally friendly alternative in the construction industry.
