Concrete Technology Research Institute(R&D Center)
Founded in 1995, the Concrete Technology Research Institute was the first R&D center in the concrete industry. It has been discovering and developing various materials and researching on how to use them, with an aim to improve product capacity, as well as develop new products and environmentally friendly concrete. The institute’s fantastic achievements include 163 published papers, 39 patents (including two that are currently being examined by the patent office), and 100 case studies (government-invested research, joint studies, and independent studies).
Over the last five years, it has been playing a leading role in the development of eco-friendly technologies, such as securing the technology to commercialize low-carbon emission RMC, by participating in the research project to commercialize the technology for ‘the high-volume mineral admixture (HVMA) RMC with high-strength’ by the Korea Agency for Infrastructure Technology Advancement.
