MiSTI Research

The University Transportation Center for Materials in Sustainable Transportation Infrastructure at Michigan Tech is exploring new research initiatives focused on the role materials play in creating a more sustainable transportation infrastructure. Center research seeks to identify more sustainable approaches to the use of existing and conventional materials including aggregates, hot mix asphalt, and portalnd cement concrete. New research also explores innovative materials that incorporate less use of diminishing natural resources and an increase in the use of industrial waste, co-products and other secondary market materials like slag, cement kiln dust, recycled concrete and asphalt, and fly ash.
