Carbon nanotube concrete additive developer, Eden Innovations (ASX: EDE) begins 2020 the way it ended the previous year – with the announcement that another American state had approved the use of its innovative products.
The company announced that North Carolina Department of Transportation had approved the use of EdenCrete PZ after extensive trials.
This brings to 12 the number of US states whose transport authorities have approved EdenCrete Pz, which contains fly ash, slag and silica fume to improve the performance of concrete, under America’s National Transportation Products Evaluation Program.
In December @AuManufacturing reported that the Vermont Agency of Transportation had approved both Edencrete Pz and EdenCrete, the company’s carbon nanotube enriched admixture for strengthening concrete.
The 2019 year was a breakthrough year for Eden in the US, announcing a string of successes in penetrating new regional markets.
The 18 states where the company’s products are approved for use are Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia and West Virginia.
These states represent 45 per cent of the total US population and 45 per cent, or 65,500, of the structurally deficient or obsolete bridges in the US.
