Uniikkia Oulusta: Can the Oulu-based eco concrete save the world?

Concrete is cheap, versatile, reliable, and almost anything can be built from it, which is why it is the most used building material in the world. The production of concrete requires cement, which produces huge emissions to the environment. The University of Oulu studies eco concrete, which uses industrial waste as a raw material. Could Oulu-based eco concrete be the solution to the global emissions problem?
