One such innovative composite is LiTraCon’s light transmitting concrete; it takes one of our most reliable building materials and embeds thousands of optical fibers within it, creating the effect of translucent concrete. As another method of harnessing natural light, possibilities are abounding with regards to aesthetics and design. The ability to introduce subtle natural lighting while maintaining privacy provides large environmental benefits in addition to its aesthetic ones, including reducing the cost of heating and lighting.
