dc.descriptionThe news release explains that a byproduct of the pulp and paper industry is being used to strengthen the Glen Canyon Dam. Lignin, used as an additive to the concrete mix for the dam, serves as a lubricant. Reclamation engineers have found that lignin increases the plasticity of the mix and reduces the water needed, which in turn increases the compressive strength of the mass concrete about ten percent.
