New BCN DOE Grant- Storing CO2 in Built Infrastructure: CO2 Carbonation of Precast Concrete Products
A team of Beyond Carbon Neutral researchers has received a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy for a research proposal related to work based on preliminary BCN seed funding. This project aims to promote carbon capture and storage technologies within coal-fired plant infrastructure and demonstrate economically viable CO2 storage opportunities. Precast technology developed from this study would have a substantially lower energy footprint, and could possibly be carbon negative due to stored CO2, the use of waste heat and fly ash from coal-based power plants, elimination of prestressing steel, recycling of waste streams from steel and mining industries, and the use of plant fibers. Potential benefits of this work could include development of low-CO2 emissions infrastructure products with longer lifetimes than current technology, incorporation of would-be industrial waste aggregate materials into construction, and creation of ubiquitous CO2 storage in the built environment.
This interdisciplinary seminar series brings leading researchers to campus in order to introduce faculty and students to atmospheric carbon dioxide removal and its associated opportunities, challenges and research needs. Entitled “Climate Change Mitigation: Moving Beyond Carbon Neutral,” this unique set of seminars is co-hosted by the university’s Energy Institute, its School of Environment and Sustainability and the Erb Institute for Sustainable Enterprise. It is funded as a distinguished faculty and student seminar series by the University of Michigan Provost and Office of Research. […]
If you want to do something about global warming, look under your feet. Managed well, soil’s ability to trap carbon dioxide is potentially much greater than previously estimated, according to researchers who say the resource could “significantly” offset increasing global emissions. […]
