Purdue University is beginning to test it's concrete infused with wood & cellulose nanocrystals. Initial theories show the concrete is stronger. Stronger concrete would have significant impacts on construction... concrete is a heavy material to build with, so if you can build with less material for the same strength, you can significantly reduce the overall mass of a building or structure. This leads to less loading on the foundation and further cost savings!
