The science of carbon removal and carbon sinks

21 July 2023, Published under Cement News

This week Brimstone announced that it had achieved third-party certification of its carbon-negative cement that meets the ASTM C150 standard. Low-carbon and green cements are continuously being developed as alternatives to ordinary Portland cement (OPC). Decarbonising the cement and concrete sectors will need such innovation, but the science of carbon removal from cement and concrete and to what extent they can act as carbon sinks is still a debated subject. While carbon capture, utilis...

Carbon Upcycling receives SCM project investment funds

01 May 2023, Published under Cement News

Carbon Upcycling and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), funded by the US Department of Energy, has been awarded international funding to advance carbon utilisation technology in the cement and concrete industry. The CAD$600,000 (US$442,102) investment will support the development of a framework that will assess the suitability of various alternative feedstocks to produce supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) in North America, including biomass, low-grade steel slags,...

Carbon4Minerals targets CCS and carbon-negative materials

31 March 2023, Published under Cement News

The Carbon4Minerals  project consortium, composed of 14 partners from seven European countries, is a collaborative effort to develop innovative technologies for CO₂ capture and use in the production of carbon-negative minerals for high-value construction products, with the potential to reduce CO₂ emissions by 80-135 per cent compared to cement-based reference materials. The core concept of Carbon4Minerals addresses the simultaneous use of CO₂ from industrial flue gases with current and...
