CEO visits White House
David Rosenberg, CEO, Hycrete, Inc., joined seven other heads of leading cleantech firms at the White House on July 2, 2009, to discuss how innovative clean technology companies can help jumpstart the U.S. economy. During the meeting, Rosenberg briefed President Barack Obama on Hycrete’s technology and system approach, which integrally waterproofs concrete and guards it against corrosion using an environmentally friendly admixture. The material, coupled with Hycrete’s field support service, makes concrete more easily recyclable by eliminating the need for external membranes that can contain toxins and VOCs. “When you hear the innovation that’s taking place… [including] new concrete materials that last longer and are waterproofed from the inside out, and that can mean that bridges and roads and buildings can last 20 or 30 years longer than using conventional concrete…that gets you excited,” Obama said after the meeting.
