Building material will be featured in exhibition at Detroit Science Center

Geopolymer concrete, an innovative and environmentally-friendly building material being researched at Louisiana Tech University’s Trenchless Technology Center, will be featured in a transportation exhibition taking place at the Detroit Science Center.

Erez Allouche, research director for the TTC, and his team, have been developing innovative uses for geopolymer concrete, which is an emerging class of cementitious materials that utilize “fly ash,” one of the most abundant industrial by-products, as a substitute for Portland cement, the most widely produced man-made material on earth.

“Presenting geopolymer concrete at a widely-attended public exhibition provides essential exposure to this emerging green construction technology,” said Allouche. “If the public is aware that there are more sustainable ways to construct our highways and bridges, it will expect its government agencies to explore and promote these ‘greener’ technologies.
