The Green Innovation Project (Sustainable Concrete Construction)

Budget: Rs. 31,50,000

The project, titled “Green Innovation: Harnessing Microbes for Sustainable Concrete Construction,” aims to revolutionize concrete construction by integrating microbial technology. Addressing Sustainable Development Goals, it explores the intersection of microbiology and construction engineering to enhance concrete’s environmental sustainability, strength, and durability. The interdisciplinary approach seeks to contribute to global efforts in mitigating climate change and inspire widespread adoption of microbial concrete, offering potential benefits for society, businesses, and the construction industry. The project involves microbial strain selection, laboratory cultivation, concrete mix design, casting, mechanical testing, microstructural analysis, and environmental resistance testing over a 3-year period with a budget of Rs. 31,50,000.
