Materials and engineering: Rebuilding the world

Thu, 2017-05-18 11:59

When Mahoutian started his PhD in civil engineering at McGill University in Montreal in 2011, his goal was to find a material that would sequester carbon, trapping it before it could get into the atmosphere. Instead, he came up with a new recipe for making concrete. “We totally get rid of cement,” he says. “Instead we use slag, the waste material of steel-producing plants.” The slag is calcium silicate. When wet calcium silicate is injected with CO2 gas, calcium carbonate, or limestone, forms. Limestone and the aggregate form Carbicrete.

AMT rejects Bombardier bid for new train cars, goes with Chinese firm

Thu, 2017-05-18 11:03

At one point, Bombardier would have been a shoo-in for the contract to build new commuter-train cars for Montreal’s Agence Métropolitaine de Transport, but not this time.

Instead, the contract is going to the China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation, which bid at $69 million, compared to Bombardier’s $103 million — and boasts a wait of six-months less for the new cars.
