"One of his recycling ideas: Grind up the butts and add them to concrete, replacing fibermesh, an anti-cracking agent that is often added to concrete and usually made from polypropylene. "

That's a great future job creator. I can imagine an entire industry of certified concrete demolition "experts" in hazmat spacesuits, presiding over future concrete removals.

Think mold, asbestos, mercury, etc.
