MIT researchers have been examining the structure of concrete in an attempt to better understand how the material works and to develop better (and less energy-intensive methods) for manufacturing cement.
Cutting back on cement production, or finding a cleaner way of producing it could be a huge step in reducing greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere. It may not be as cool as light transmitting concrete, but it has a much greater potential to be a useful contribution towards a greener world.
