AEEE Capital Holding & Advisory Group today announced the completion of a peer review led by Dr. Maher Tadros, Founding Principal of e.construct.US, LLC of its revolutionary new sustainable EASSCM-branded Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC) mix.
According to Dr. Tadros’ peer review, AEEE’s proprietary technology could have a disruptive impact on building and infrastructure construction. This comes as the Biden administration finalizes its trillion-dollar federal infrastructure bill targeting over 10,000 U.S. bridges.
“Cement is one of the most consumed products on the planet. It represents 8% of the world’s annual carbon emissions,” says MJ Said, Chief Executive Officer of AEEE. “We’re gratified that Dr. Tadros’ peer review not only confirms the unparalleled performance and long-term value of AEEE’s concrete mix, but also that its sustainable attributes could help the industry reduce the carbon footprint of cement by 16% by 2030 under Paris Accord commitments. The structural life expectancy of bridges built with this new material could exceed 300 years with virtually no maintenance. This is four times the 75-year design life of the bridges currently built.”
About the sustainable UHPC mix
- The sustainability of the AEEE mix is accompanied by a revolutionary increase in compressive strength to 48,500 PSI. It also sees an increase of flexural strength to 7,100 PSI. This is two times stronger than the current market-leading concrete mixes;
- The mix produces a lifespan of over 300 years for bridges vs. the current ~75 years, according to e.construct;
- The mix results (in combination with unique structural design) in potential savings of up to 47% in total project costs with expedited timetables for construction projects of up to 33%; and
- AEEE’s precast concrete bridge girder system utilizing the AEEE mix results in 50% weight reduction and in virtual elimination of steel rebar. The intrusive impact on the environment is lessened by both the sharply reduced need for total cement and steel usage and reduced fossil-fuel energy consumption. Offered Proprietary Long Span Bridge Beams/Girders have 20 to 50% longer spans and are more efficient than any other existing concrete beam/girder technology at this time.
AEEE’s technology is in commercial use in China and Egypt. The company actively engages itself in discussions with global construction companies and major financial institutions on potential joint ventures to maximize licensing opportunities in the Americas, Europe, Asia, and also Australia.
An overview of the e.construct peer review of AEEE’s UHPC technology is also available to qualified institutions upon request.
