A number of products you use in your home contain resins. Resins are materials that act as a glue between polymers, and polymers make up synthetic organic materials like plastics and fibers. Chris Williams, a professor in civil engineering, is working on a collaborative project that could replace resins with cleaner, more efficient biomaterials. “It … Continue reading Clean and green
A new study published in Canadian Geotechnical Journal suggests that an enzyme derived from bacteria could be used to enhance the stability of certain soils.
Researchers explore greener methods for incorporating high-percentage recycled asphalt pavement mixture into roadways Late last month, a team of Iowa State University (ISU) researchers and industry partners gathered in Crawford County, Iowa, for the unveiling of an exciting development in how engineers use renewable resources in jobsites. Chris Williams is a professor of geotechnical/materials engineering … Continue reading Iowa State University engineers use innovative rejuvenator to recycle asphalt pavement
