Eggshells can be used to build stronger houses

Concrete is the most commonly used material in construction, but it releases large amounts of CO2 and other greenhouse gases into the air. To reduce the negative environmental impact of conventional materials, it is important to find alternatives such as self-healing concrete. And in this article, I explain how self-healing concrete works:

Another alternative is using bio-waste such as eggshells. They can be transformed into eggshell powder, which is more environmentally friendly and reduces costs. In this article, I explain how eggshells can be used in construction:

    A good idea to improve a building material, but I actually think it's better to use the eggshells as soil improvement.

        It is encouraging to see efforts to reduce the environmental impact of conventional building materials and finding alternatives such as self-healing concrete.
