"Arizona based Urbix Resources has produced the first economically viable graphene-enhanced lightweight concrete.

Urbix’s research and development team created what they call a ‘Graphenesque’ additive that provides a 33% increase in compressive strength, a 32% reduction in CO2 emissions, and at a cost that is over 16% lower than the next best lightweight concrete alternative on the market." Here.

I've been waiting for graphene news. Interesting.

Informative and interesting.  Technology of materials keeps improving.

With carbon atoms 200 times stronger than steel, it’s pretty much the plastic of now, Cuevas said. It’s pretty much a new revolution in materials

Yes. I find graphene particularly exciting, or at least potentially exciting.
