So I’d heard about “self-healing” concrete using chemicals that react with water to seal cracks, I’ve even blogged about self-healing concrete using bacteria embedded into the concrete (back in 2011). And then yesterday I came across research talking about using fungi for this purpose. Regardless of which method ends up working, I think these are all cool ideas worth exploring. May the best microbe/chemical win!
One thought on “Fungi for self-healing concrete”
If that’s true, that would be an incredible discovery. Maybe it could be used for all the old government buildings. Save the tax payers a bunch
