After months of negotiations, the Biden administration signed into law one of the largest infrastructure bills in U.S. history. Biden signed this into law on November 15, 2021. Of the $1.2 trillion in confirmed funding, $550 billion has been reserved for improving the country’s roads, bridges, airports, waterways, and other major transportation programs. This bill is an important step towards upgrading critical infrastructure. It will result in tangible improvements in the lives of Americans while helping boost the country’s economy.
This funding comes on the heels of Biden’s Leaders Summit on Climate in April. During that summit, the President expressed his commitment to reducing Greenhouse Gases (GHG).
“President Biden’s bill will see a surge in new construction projects and concrete production, driven by a push for improved infrastructure,” said Pouria Ghods. Ghods is the Co-Founder and CEO of Giatec Scientific. “However, global concrete production already contributes approximately 2 billion tons of greenhouse gasses every year, so the need for technological solutions to mitigate the increased demand will be at a critical high.”.
More about Giatec Scientific technology
Giatec Scientific, a global leader in sustainable concrete, has been making great strides in proven solutions toward reducing 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 concrete testing. Its applications include optimizing concrete mixtures, reducing cement usage and concrete’s CO2 footprint. Additionally, it includes predicting concrete properties, and proactively detecting anomalies in concrete performance and testing.
SmartMix is a web-based dashboard that operationalizes Roxi’s skills. This enables producers to adjust the proportions of their mixes. It also allows them to predict how such changes influence their concrete performance in terms of its compressive strength and other criteria.
Giatec is a global company. They are revolutionizing the construction industry. They are doing this by bringing both smart testing technologies and real-time data collection to the forefront of every jobsite. Giatec’s suite of both hardware and software products has leveraged advanced technologies such as; Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Internet of Things (IoT), including; wireless concrete sensors, mobile apps, and also advanced non-destructive technologies (NDT) to drive innovation throughout concrete’s lifecycle.
