ACRETE

Inventors in the College of Engineering developed a substitute for concrete that has many advantages over traditional Portland cement. The new material is lighter, stronger and less expensive to produce than concrete. It does this while using three times as much fly ash, thus tripling the amount of the pollutant that is converted from waste into useful material. The new company goes by the same name as the material: Acrete, a combination of “Arizona” and “concrete.”
