An environmental engineering graduate student of West Tehran Islamic Azad University has been created a new form of concrete with rubber wastes that make it the most environmentally friendly type of building material.

According to an ISCA report, Mostafa Yadegari has turned his master's thesis into practice and created environmentally friendly concrete from rubber wastes.

Concrete in its traditional form is made from cement, mixed with a range of coarse aggregates such as gravel, limestone or granite, and some finer particle aggregates such as sand or fly ash.

Yadegari explained that his idea could turn into the practice and right now is in the patent registration phase, “the prototype has been made and prepared to be presented in the market."

As he declared, the product can also be used as a defensive strategy due to its adoption of high-strength reinforcement.

This unique eco-friendly concrete with anticorrosive properties, which has no foreign samples, is going to be produced for the first time in Iran.
