Tires and building rubble combine for 35% stronger concrete


Aside from simply finding a new use for discarded goods, we’ve seen how adding recycled rubber tires to concrete can make the material stronger and more heat resistant. New research has continued to expand the possibilities in this area, with scientists coming up with a new manufacturing method for a recycled concrete aggregate that produces a version 35 percent stronger than traditional concrete.
Made from a blend of cement, water, crushed rocks, sand and other ingredients, scientists are constantly experimenting with the makeup of these various components in pursuit of better construction m
