Analysis: Can a waste product from the steel industry become a smart building material?


Eva Jiménez Relinque, ComFuturo researcher at the Institute of Construction Sciences Eduardo Torroja (IETcc-CSIC), analyses in Madri+d whether a waste product from the steel industry can become a smart building material.

In this way, we could have pavements or buildings capable of reducing pollution in cities while at the same time making the most of an industrial waste.
