Omer Haciomeroglu's Clean Concrete Recycling RobotConcrete has been used in construction for almost 3,000 years, it is THE most versatile building material on the planet, it’s also the least green. Our use of concrete in building is beyond extensive, by weight you’d need every other building material combined, then doubled to get even close to our reliance on this versatile composite.

The next most used substance on the planet is water, of which concrete also consumes an unhealthy amount of.

The main component of concrete is cement, the manufacture of which is one of the major contributors of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. Cutting back on our use of cement and concrete is a hardship, the stuff is tough and relatively cheap compared with alternatives.

Recycling concrete is becoming much more common, in of itself however, it’s not such a green practice. Concrete demolition usually ends up with as much discarded landfill as recyclable product, and once concrete reaches the recycling yard it’s reprocessing takes almost as much energy as making the stuff from scratch.

Imagine a machine, a robot that could recycle concrete structures without all the heavy machinery, a single deconstruction  process. World meet Omer Haciomeroglu’s ERO Concrete De-construction Robot :: Read the full article »»»»
