ceEntek’s Carbon Nanofiber UHPC is used for the first all-precast bridge replacement in Indiana, USA
January 4, 2022
We are pleased to be featured in the Roads & Bridges Magazine’s January publication. As the world’s only manufacturer of Carbon Nano Fiber based Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC 2.0) we are proud to see many US DOTs rapidly approve and incorporate our innovative and sustainable products in bridge construction and rehabilitation.
We entered the US market with four bridge projects in 2020, and last year completed five times as many, including the Indiana Department of Transportation’s U.S. 52 over Mud Creek Bridge Replacement Project.
This year, we are looking to maintain the same level of growth as the infrastructure repair market is looking to take advantage of $40 billion capital allocation for bridge repairs, replacement, and rehabilitation under President Biden’s Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, the single-largest dedicated bridge investment since the construction of the Interstate Highway System!

Partnership agreement between ceEntek and The Fort Miller Co., Inc.
November 30, 2020.
Singapore, SG / Greenwich, NY: We are pleased to announce a new Licensing Agreement and strategic partnership between ceEntek Pte Ltd and The Fort Miller Co., Inc. This new relationship will develop a collaborative business model in which ceEntek will provide its Carbon Nano Fiber (CNF) enhanced technology and Next Generation UHPC 2.0 know-how to Fort Miller for the exclusive purpose of manufacture, supply and install of Precast Ultra-High Performance Concrete Waffle Deck Panels and other structural components in New York State. The collaboration of ceEntek’s technology with Fort Miller’s expertise, experience and strong presence in the NY area bridge market will facilitate the development of these competitive new bridge components.
The impact of heavy truck traffic, yearly freeze/thaw and de-icing salts cause ongoing deterioration to bridge decks. The resulting damage and maintenance of bridge decks is a major cost to the operation of the highway infrastructure. Manufacturing a precast UHPC waffle bridge deck panel provides a lightweight, sturdy and durable solution for the deteriorating bridge infrastructure.
In addition, Fort Miller and ceEntek will be working in collaboration with bridge contractors to install the UHPC waffle deck panels. The Fort Miller Co., Inc and ceEntek Pte Ltd are excited at the prospect of this partnership to solve the ongoing bridge infrastructure repair needs in the state of New York.

‘Advanced material manufacturing is one of many areas in which the country hopes to gain a global edge by addressing local problems with broader market relevance. “Like other densely populated cities,” explains Seeram Ramakrishna, director at the National University of Singapore’s Center for Nanofibers and Nanotechnology, “Singapore needs to find ways to make the best use of its limited space while further improving the quality of life.” He adds, “Advanced materials that meet the requirements of a certain application in terms of strength, durability, self-repair, noise mitigation, thermal management and security, while limiting the use of raw materials, are fundamental to this strategy.”
Economic development means more businesses, more people and thus more buildings. In Asia alone, an estimated 55% of the population will live in cities by 2030. Given Singapore’s dwindling landmass, sustainable long-term growth will depend on going vertical.
ceEntek, a local start-up that makes nano-engineered Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC), is a determined pathfinder on this front. Carbon nano-fiber materials have long tantalized the construction industry. These supernaturally robust yet lightweight materials promise taller, more efficiently assembled structures. Until recently, however, engineers toiled to figure out how to homogenously disperse these fibers in a concrete paste. Now, with its new UHPC concoction, ceEntek believes that it’s finally solved the riddle. At half the mass and one-tenth the carbonation rate of normal concrete, UHPC offers superior strength, multi-elemental impermeability and a useful life expectancy of 100+ years.
From bigger skyscrapers and readily transportable prefabricated homes to lagoon cities, material pioneers—like ceEntek—are placing Singapore at the forefront of a looming global battle against overpopulation.’
