Atlanta-based company develops greener cement

Abstract:
Nanotechnology is coming to the cement industry. An American start-up company based in Atlanta has developed a nano-scaled form of cement that it claims will slash the cost of manufacturing cement by about a third, and carbon dioxide emissions by about 30 per cent.

And if that's not enough, the new cement might be used, some scientists have said, to create concretes that develop strength faster, at least in part because of the nano-scale size of the cement particles.

The company making the claims is Sriya Green Materials Inc., and its CEO, Srinivas Kilambi, says the technology "will produce cement, using the same raw materials used today, in about 40 seconds, as opposed to 40 minutes. It will take about half the energy.
