Sustainable Building Materials: A Concrete House Made from Cassava Waste

Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung | Dr. Wolfram Schmidt

How Africa is pioneering urban, green, and circular construction technologies

Concrete is the most widely used building material in the world: many millions of tons of concrete are used every year.  However, it has its downsides: up to 8% of the world’s CO2 comes from the production of concrete. At the same time, concrete is the only material on earth that is available in sufficient supply to meet the growing demand for construction materials. Therefore it is of utmost importance that researchers work on the development of more sustainable concrete.  A German-Nigerian-Ghanaian cooperation at BAM has now developed a climate-friendly alternative that is just as resilient and safe as conventional concrete.
