Road maintenance specialists and scientists in Siberia?s Kemerovo have developed a new nanoadditive for cement, Russian news agency ITAR-TASS reported, citing Alexander Samarov of the academic Research Institute of Coal Chemistry and Chemical Material Science. According to Mr. Samarov, just 0.01% of the Kemerit nanomodified carbon additive in cement?s overall amount can strengthen structures by an estimated 20-25%. The new reinforced cement can be used in residential and road construction as well as in building special projects such as bridges or canals. The first projects to use the innovation cement will be completed one-to-two years from now, Mr. Samarov said. The additive can be made both from coal and from other chemical products, the scientist explained. According to expert estimates, coal can be used to produce about 130 different chemical semi-products...
