GLOW-IN-THE-DARK CEMENT COULD TOTALLY CHANGE HOW WE LIGHT CITIES

After nine years of research, Dr. José Carlos Rubio has overcome this hurdle and figured out a way of altering the micro-structure of cement itself, eliminating the opaque crystalline byproducts of the normal production process that blocked phosphorescence.

When fully charged by exposure to light, Rubio’s cement can glow for up to 12 hours, and should retain this ability for about a century.
