3D concrete printing could reduce CO2 emissions

A team of the University of Ghent and the 3D concrete printing company Vertico researched the optimization of 3d printed concrete structures.

By using Vertico’s integrated robotic large-scale 3D printer, the team printed a concrete footbridge that used only 40% of the material while withstanding the same stresses as a traditionally manufactured bridge. With this project, Vertico hopes to demonstrate that 3D concrete printing can automate the construction industry while reducing CO2 emissions.

Vertico, located in Utrecht offers various machines and services.
