I came across the video below online last week and I have been pondering over it. It's an amazing new concrete which "drinks up" water and can absorb gallons of it at a time. According to the video, "the concrete has been designed to be a super-absorbent surface covering that allows water to seep through it rather than sitting on top in an attempt to combat flooding".
Could this be the solution to our flooding problems in Nigeria? Can they channel drains beneath the concrete or where exactly does the water go to?
Perhaps someone from our Ministry for Environment can take a closer look into this and see if it is doable.
I'd have thought Lafarge Nigeria or even Dangote Cement would be all over this like a rash sef. Hmmmmn.
