Vittorio (Vic) Cucurnia, Vice-President of Operations based at S.I.C.O.MA’s  North American office in Florida, shares major trends and outlooks, sharing that “the future of concrete in Europe is ‘bio-concrete,’ one of the newest innovations in building because of its ability to repair itself; while ‘bio-concrete’ is relatively new, we will see more usage as more manufacturers utilize this - now is the moment.” Another trend that has taken the industry by storm, he cites, is the prevailing usage of wet-cast concrete over traditional dry-cast concrete. Finally, there is a movement towards sustainable and environmentally friendly power sources, replacing traditional diesel.”
