The First 3D-Printed Bridge For Cyclists Is Officially Here

Cement is used around the world to create bridges, homes, and offices. Unfortunately, the intense heat needed to create the cement often generates a significant amount of CO2 emissions. Sadly, the popular material isn’t always a sustainable building option.
