That's it, they did it! This German start-up referenced in the base for two years for its revolutionary magnetic concrete has just signed a first major contract in Finland where magnetic bituminous concrete is used in the construction of loading stations for public transport vehicles. This concrete is heavily loaded with magnetic aggregates from electronic waste, it is easy to produce, based on low cost materials, and its ferrite load offers this particular ability to transmit electricity or heat. This advance makes it possible to imagine walls or heating roads, or as in Finland, the static or dynamic recharging of electric vehicles by induction. If tomorrow the cars have the opportunity to recharge by rolling, it reduces all the necessary space for batteries!
