Ehsani's QuakeWrap StifPipe an Innovation Standout

Mo Ehsani in officeThe American Society of Civil Engineers has announced the winners of its first ASCE Innovation Contest, and StifPipe, a technology created by Professor Emeritus Mo Ehsani's QuakeWrap Inc., was named Best Value in Green Engineering. 

StifPipe, called the "world's first 'green' and sustainable pipe," consists of a lightweight honeycomb core covered with carbon- or glass-fiber-reinforced polymer. It is easily manufactured to any shape or size, does not corrode and weighs less than traditional pipes.

Tucson News Now has video of Ehsani describing the benefits of using StifPipe over conventional metal pipes.
