Giatec® Maintains Robust Supply Chain for SmartRock® Wireless Concrete Sensor Despite Global Chip Shortage

While other companies struggle with suppliers, Giatec has increased SmartRock production to meet their growing customer demand   Giatec® Scientific Inc., the world leader in concrete testing technologies, announces that production of SmartRock® has not been affected by the worldwide semiconductor chip shortage due to long-term strategic planning of its supply chain. The effects of the ongoing global semiconductor chip shortage have stretched from the tech industry to more than 150 others. Millions of products rely on semiconductors, but the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have made their production unable to meet industry demand. Even industry giants such as Apple Inc. were unimmune and are now looking to slash their projected iPhone 13 production targets for 2021 by 10 million units. As the world is projected to endure the prolonged effects of this shortage through to 2023, these events are expected to soon impact the construction…

Giatec Scientific Applauds $1.2 Trillion Bill for New Infrastructure Projects

$550 billion commitment to improving U.S. infrastructure augurs increasing demand in the construction industry    OTTAWA, Canada: After months of negotiations, the Biden administration signed into law one of the largest infrastructure bills in U.S. history on November 15, 2021. Of the $1.2 trillion in confirmed funding, $550 billion has been reserved for improving the country’s roads, bridges, airports, waterways, and other major transportation programs. This bill is an important step towards upgrading critical infrastructure and will result in tangible improvements in the lives of Americans while helping boost the country’s economy.    This funding comes on the heels of Biden’s Leaders Summit on Climate in April in which the President expressed his commitment to reducing Greenhouse Gases (GHG).     “President Biden’s bill will see a surge in new construction projects and concrete production, driven by a push for improved infrastructure,” said Pouria Ghods, Co-Founder and CEO of Giatec Scientific “However, global concrete production already contributes approximately 2 billion tons of greenhouse gasses every year, so the need for technological solutions to mitigate the increased demand will be at a critical high.”.     Giatec, a global leader in sustainable concrete, has been making great strides in proven solutions toward reducing CO2 emissions from cement production. Using proprietary sensing…

Giatec® Limits Cement Usage and CO2 Emissions with AI-Powered Tools Roxi™ and SmartMix™

Giatec’s Advanced Artificial Intelligence-Based Programs Help Reduce Greenhouse Gases in the Construction Industry OTTAWA, Canada: During GreenBiz’s VERGE 2021 climate tech event this week, Giatec®, a leading innovator in sustainable concrete, draws attention to the significant reductions in CO2 emissions from cement production using their artificial intelligence (AI) tools Roxi™ and SmartMix™. Every year, 20 billion tons (10 billion cubic yards) of concrete is produced globally. This translates to approximately 2 billion tons of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions or 8% of global CO2 pollution. Using their proprietary sensing technology combined with their predictive AI-based models, Roxi and SmartMix, Giatec can help reduce CO2 emissions by up to 20%. “Roxi enables a significant reduction to concrete’s CO2 footprint,” states Andrew Fahim, Director, Research & Development at Giatec. “This is evident when comparing Giatec’s data for mixtures produced in the US, Canada, and European markets and the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) benchmark versus algorithmic suggestions for mixtures to meet the same compressive strength classes as those in the NRMCA benchmark.” Ready-mix concrete producers design concrete mixes based on limited data and visibility into the…
