Cement is the main component in concrete, and the production of cement accounts for 8% of the world’s CO2 emission. This project investigates green concrete using cement substitutes such as waste paper, and aims to reduce paper waste in our community! Term 1 will mainly focus on developing a reliable methodology for making papercrete. If term 2 is in-person, we will be producing papercrete and testing out its properties.
If you are interested in sustainable concrete and wish to do research and gain hands-on engineering skills while working with students from different disciplines, apply as a general member! We are looking for people with experience in SolidWorks, but it is not required.
