Concretene, graphene enhanced concrete, online

Watch this event

After water, concrete is the most widely used substance on Earth.

It’s also responsible for 8-10% of global CO2 emissions.

Engineers from Nationwide Engineering and scientists from The University of Manchester’s Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre (GEIC) have developed an enhanced concrete that promises to be a game-changer thanks to the transformational addition of 2D material - graphene.

Concretene is a pioneering UK-based technology that is both greener and cheaper – it significantly reduces carbon emissions by:

  • Creating a structural enhancement for 99% of the world's concrete
  • Up to 50% increase in compressive, tensile and flexural strength
  • 100% removal of steel reinforcement & joints in ground bearing and suspended slabs
  • Up to 30% removal of the concrete volumes in ground bearing and suspended slabs
  • 20% reduction in overall cost

With over 500 tonnes of Concretene already deployed on commercial projects across the UK, hear about:

  • how Concretene is already reducing CO2
  • how the technology works
  • current applications
  • the future for this material including the route to accreditation
