"Progress Through Knowledge" Welcome to The American Concrete Institute San Diego Chapter
In 1905, concerned concrete enthusiasts set out with a mission to develop a means for making concrete a safe usable, durable material. The result of their determination was the formation of the American Concrete Institute. Chartered as a technical society, the not-for-profit ACI emerged with a goal of guiding and assisting its members and the general public by disseminating information on concrete.

May 10, 2016 ACI Luncheon
Thank you to Tom Tietz and Nathan Forrest for a great seminar on May 10, 2016 on “Concrete and Sustainability – Putting the Pieces Together"
The University of California San Diego received a grant on May 10, 2016 from PCA Education Foundation for $35,000 to help fund their research below.
PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND RESEARCH PLAN We propose to create low-cost, highly-active bimetallic, nanocrystalline catalysts for CO2 reduction. Because CO2 is an extremely stable molecule, additional potential beyond that thermodynamically required is needed to drive electroreduction at an appreciable rate, even when using current state-of-the-art Cu catalysts. The metal catalyst provides reaction sites for the reduction to occur and has a critical impact on the reaction pathway, determining which hydrocarbons are produced. Earth-abundant Cu is known to have an intermediate binding strength for CO relative to other metal catalyst candidates including precious metals, allowing for uniquely reduced energy barriers on Cu surfaces.
