L-R, Melissa Chou, Joe Chou, and Roger Babb, President, OSA.A new concrete manufacturing process has been developed at the Illinois State Geological Survey (ISGS). OSA Inc is one of the companies interested in licensing the technology. The president of the company visited the concrete laboratory at the ISGS on August 25, 2008, and met with Melissa Chou, Joe Chou, and David Morse. The benefits of using this new manufacturing process were discussed. The new process plant will require a tenth of the initial capital investment and reduce more than half of the cement needed by a regular process plant. A U.S. patent application describing the process was recently filed through the University of Illinois
