Eco-efficient cement could pave the way to a greener future
The Rice lab of James Tour, the T.T. and W.F. Chao Chair in Chemistry and a professor of computer science and of materials science and nanoengineering, used flash Joule heating to remove toxic heavy metals from fly ash, a powdery byproduct of coal-based electric power plants that is used frequently in concrete mixtures. Using purified coal fly ash reduces the amount of cement needed and improves the concrete’s quality. Tour, postdoctoral research associates Bing Deng and Wei Meng, and Satish Nagarajaiah, professor of civil and environmental engineering and of mechanical engineering, are quoted. Rice alumnus Paul Advincula, Weiyin Chen, Robert Carter and Gang Li and graduate students Lucas Eddy, Kevin Wyss and Yi Cheng are mentioned as study co-authors.
