Mighty Buildings can print a home in just 24 hours in their Oakland, CA factory using a thermoset polymer composite that is cured with a UV light (on the printer head). The process is fast enough for the material to support its own weight allowing fo
In May, 2021, UK construction company Nationwide Engineering laid the world's first graphene-enhanced concrete slab engineered for sustainability in a commercial setting.
According to UK-based commodity research firm Marex, Guinea is one of the world's largest bauxite exporters. The country mines about a quarter of the world's supply. So far, there are no signs yet of supply disruptions.

quartet of manufacturing firms has managed to create the world's first fossil fuel-free steel in Sweden, much of which will go straight into the foundries of Volvo to create the first cars ever made with "green steel."
When lightweight composite materials are used in fields such as aerospace, it's vitally important to know if they're experiencing mechanical stress – before they fail. A new composite is able to do so, simply by fluorescing under UV light.
