Fresh Concrete 3: Recharging electric vehicles using concrete
|Wednesday 25 May 2022
|Mauricio Esguerra, Co-Founder & CEO, Magment
This third Fresh Concrete event focused on innovative technology that has the potential to transform the performance and uses for concrete. It included new concrete being trialled in roads to wirelessly recharge electric vehicles in motion, and self-healing concrete that uses a bacteria-based admixture, to enhance water tightness, reduce maintenance and increase the life span of concrete structures.
Mauricio Esguerra, Co-Founder & CEO, Magment
Magment have developed an innovative form of concrete with the ability to recharge electric vehicles as they move across it. Engineered using magnetic particles, from recycled electronic waste, this magnetizable concrete technology is currently being trialled in roads and warehouses to provide dynamic, wireless charging, concrete infrastructure.
In this presentation Mauricio will explain the technology and its benefits, as well as its potential applications for sustainable transportation and manufacture and an update on current pilot projects and business models such as Charging as a Service.
Fresh Concrete, produced in partnership with The Building Centre, is intended to be a platform for knowledge sharing for all construction professionals, bringing a fresh approach and fresh thinking for concrete.
