Research on Carbon Sequestration in Concrete Has Exciting Potential
The Global CO2 Initiative at the University of Michigan is working to make carbon sequestration and reuse technologies profitable and mainstream tools. The group has identified concrete as one of the earliest methods of this technology that is ready to scale. Concrete, especially precast concrete, is a product that removed carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and can be enhance with additives. Researchers believe that this concrete could remove or divert up to 10 gigatons of carbon from the atmosphere each year.
