46 LC DBM The journal "Construction and Building Materials" recently report- ed an experiemental type of ce- ment was developed by grounding up ceramic waste such as porcelain tile, sinks and toilets, adding an activator solution and water, and baking the mixture in a mold. Tests on one mixture showed it to be stronger than some common types of cement, while using less energy in the manufacturing process. A new concept in hardscape demolition and recycling, the ERO Concrete Recycling Robot will use high-pressure water jets to attack the micro cracks on a concrete surface, breaking it down and then vacuuming the component cement, sand and aggregate into different packages for reuse. Recent test results released by Solidia Technologies, a producer of sustainable construction products, show that their new process for curing concrete with carbon dioxide instead of water can re- duce its carbon footprint by as much as 70 percent through reduced production emissions and the cement's capacity to sequester carbon dioxide during curing.
