Cement, in its broadest sense, refers to any sticky substance; but, in its more specific sense, it refers to the binding substances employed in construction and civil engineering projects. This kind of cement is a finely powdered powder that when combined with water hardens.
Hydration, a chemical reaction involving water and cement components that produces submicroscopic crystals or a substance with a vast surface area, is what causes setting and hardening.
The Spain Cement market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
Biological concrete for moss covered wall .Researchers at a university in Spain are creating a new kind of concrete that collects rainwater to produce living walls made of moss and fungi.
The new “biological concrete” promotes the growth of organisms on its own surface, in contrast to existing vertical garden systems that call for complicated supporting structures.
Microalgae, fungus, lichens, and mosses can all flourish in the moist growing environment created by the biological layer that is present in the concrete.
A waterproof layer keeps organisms away from the concrete’s core structural layer, while an exterior layer works in the other direction by letting rainfall in and preventing it from escaping.
According to the researchers, who are currently working to patent the substance, the concrete also serves as a thermal regulator, an insulator, and a material that absorbs carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
In addition, it has the ability to absorb solar radiation, allowing thermal conductivity inside structures to be adjusted according to the temperature.
Since it can be used to decorate the surface of constructions or the façade of buildings with various finishes and shades of colour, biological concrete serves as both an insulating material and a thermal regulator in addition to serving as an ornamental substitute.
It was created so that specific areas could be colonised with different colours without having to cover the entire surface. The goal is to produce a patina that resembles a biological layer of protection or a “living” artwork.
