    If the EV deals with vehicle emissions, this sorts out the equally bad ones from infrastructure:

    New Cement is Carbon Negative


    Quite a significant development.

    I first heard of a very similar product to this nearly 10 years ago - it was called TecEco EcoCement.

    We tried to get some, but that was only available in Australia. Fell back to hydrated lime instead.

    You can buy magnesium silicate boards though, as a replacement for the gypsum plasterboard. It's a superior product but also considerably more expensive.

    I figure 10 years before it makes code for habitation construction. If ever.

    Basaltt Rebar

    Also a significant development.


    Rock Rebar. Made from nearly-free volcanic rock. Does not rust so less capturing cement is needed too. 11 times lighter and 3 times stronger. Does not bend but can be made in shapes and there is also a fiberglass-style stranded roving version as well.

    This website gives the full advantages list:
