'By replacing nearly 70 per cent of cement with flyash, an industrial byproduct, we can reduce the amount of cement used,' said Dr Banthia.
'This is quite an urgent requirement as one tonne of cement production releases almost a tonne of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, and the cement industry produces close to seven per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions.'EDCC has been officially added as a retrofit option in British Columbia's seismic retrofit program, and the UBC team will be working contractors to upgrade the Annie B. According to Soleimani-Dashtaki, the material will also be used for more schools that are due for seismic upgrade in the next few months that are due for seismic upgrade.

It was designed at the molecular scale to be strong, malleable, and ductile, similar to steel.

Flyash is a byproduct from burning pulverized coal in electric power generating plants.
'By replacing nearly 70 per cent of cement with flyash, an industrial byproduct, we can reduce the amount of cement used,' says UBC civil engineering professor Dr Nemy Banthia, who supervised the work.
