New Method For Replacing Steel Mesh Used In Concrete Reinforcement With Recycled Plastic

An engineering firm Fibercon has developed a new method for replacing steel mesh used in concrete reinforcement with recycled plastic called Emesh.

The new product was created in collaboration with researchers from James Cook University in Queensland and has the benefits of reduced CO2 emissions, water usage and fossil fuels.

The technology that makes use of recycled polypropylene plastic for reinforcing concrete instead of the traditional steel, has been used by councils but mostly in footpaths for the moment as well as some pavement concrete to channel drains, embankment erosion control, precast sewer and stormwater pits.

The new technology has been hailed for its environmental benefits. See more at: https://www.architectureanddesign.com.au/news/plastic-for-steel-new-green-idea-for-the-construct
