Chris Young writes in Interesting Engineering about a new construction material that could reduce CO2 emissions.
- Calcium carbonate concrete has great potential to reduce the emissions of the concrete industry and is made by combining waste concrete and CO2 that comes from carbon capture projects.
- In its current form, calcium carbonate concrete is not as strong as traditional concrete but researchers are looking for ways to make it stronger so that it can be used in larger construction projects.
- Technological innovations are unlocking different ways in which we can reduce our carbon footprint.
