NTU scientists turn urine, industrial waste into renewable cement

Scientists from Nanyang Technological University (NTU) have found a way to transform urine and industrial waste into a renewable type of cement.

Professor Chu Jian, chair of the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering, who led the NTU research team, said: "Our research makes biocement even more sustainable by using two types of waste as its raw materials. In the long run, it will not only make it cheaper to manufacture biocement, but also reduce the cost involved for waste disposal."
