March 21, 2020 | APPEARED IN VOLUME 98, ISSUE 11

 

The concrete maker Quikrete is entering a 2-year collaboration with Oak Ridge National Laboratory to develop a concrete formulation suitable for 3-D printing of large structures. The partners hope to develop concrete that will be pumpable and set quickly while having compressive strength and other properties sufficient for a building material. The concrete would be used to make structures such as buildings, energy installations, and transportation infrastructure.
