Concrete materials require an extensive amount of resources to ensure durability.  Researchers at the University of Miami are working to change the thinking on this... by using glass-fiber rebar (instead of conventional steel rebar), their theories suggest you can increase the amount of chloride (salt) in the concrete mixture.  This would have huge effects on the world's fresh water supplies and preparation of some materials!
