OTTAWA, Ontario, November 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – After months of negotiations, the Biden administration issued one of the largest infrastructure bills in U.S. history on November 15, 2021. On the $ 1.2 trillion in confirmed funding, $ 550 billion has been set aside for improving the country’s roads, bridges, airports, waterways and other major transportation programs. This bill is an important step towards modernizing critical infrastructure and will result in tangible improvements in the lives of Americans while helping to stimulate the nation’s economy.
This funding follows the Biden Leaders Climate Summit in April, in which the president expressed his commitment to reducing greenhouse gases (GHGs).
“President Biden’s bill will lead to an increase in new construction projects and concrete production, driven by pressure to improve infrastructure,” said Pouria Ghods, co-founder and CEO of Giatec Scientific. “However, global concrete production already generates around 2 billion tonnes of greenhouse gases each year, so the need for technological solutions to alleviate the increased demand will be at a critical level.”
Giatec, a global leader in sustainable concrete, has made great strides in proven solutions to reduce CO2 emissions from cement production. Using proprietary sensing technology, combined with predictive artificial intelligence (AI) tools, Roxi ™ and & SmartMix ™, Giatec can help concrete producers reduce their CO2 emissions by up to 20%.
Roxi is the first AI algorithm created for real world testing. Its applications include optimizing concrete mixes, reducing cement usage and concrete CO2 footprint, predicting concrete properties, and proactively detecting anomalies in concrete performance and testing.
SmartMix is a web-based dashboard that operationalizes Roxi’s skills, allowing producers to adjust the proportions of their mixes and predict how those changes influence their concrete’s performance in terms of compressive strength and other criteria.
Giatec is a global company that is revolutionizing the construction industry by bringing smart test technologies and real-time data collection to the forefront of every job site. Giatec’s suite of hardware and software products have taken advantage of advanced technologies such as; AI and Internet of Things (IoT), including; wireless concrete sensors, mobile applications and advanced non-destructive technologies (NDT) to drive innovation throughout the concrete lifecycle and reduce the carbon footprint of concrete.
