'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.
Source: Concrete Construction The material, called eco-friendly ductile cementitious composite (EDCC) was engineered by researchers at the University of British Columbia (UBC).

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.Jamieson Elementary School in Vancouver 'The earthquake-resistant concrete is a great example of how applied research at our public universities is developing the next generation of agents of change.The seller warns the shoppers that the VW CC only seats four (nice touch).

'Then we subjected them to Tohoku-level quakes and other types and intensities of earthquakes—and we couldn’t break them.' EDCC combines cement with polymer-based fibers, flyash and other industrial additives, making it highly sustainable, says UBC civil engineering professor Dr Nemy Banthia, who supervised the work.
