Climate Change is real, science has some of the answers and we need to start paying attention.
Xewk by ICE, The Insitute of Civil Engineers and the Student Chapter University of Malta & MGPEI (Malta Group of Professional Engineering Institutions), is a case in point. Concrete is second only to water in terms of human consumption. The construction industry consumes large volumes of natural resources which has a negative impact on the environment. So a group of Maltese researchers are looking for sustainable practices through the use of recycled materials instead of raw materials, they have discovered new materials and nano technologies to produce more durable high performance structures. Come see this complex structure built out of this new aggregate which is not only creating a more sustainable practice, but also improving the potential for incredible designs.
