Carbon Concrete Composite | C3: The interdisciplinary Project C³ – Carbon Concrete Composite is one of ten projects promoted by the programme “Zwanzig20 – Partnership for Innovation” in the campaign “Regional Enterprise” of the Federal Ministry for Education and Research.
The project is under the direction of the Technical University at Dresden. The C³-Project is developing together with 140 partners from research, companies and associations a new composite material of carbon fibres and high-performance concrete. Carbon reinforced concrete conserves resources and is a flexible and durable alternative to steel reinforced concrete. It not only saves up to 50% in material but also opens up numerous opportunities for designs that are characterized by lightweightness and freedom of form.
