  • Project Description

    The natural minerals olivine and basalt are able to bind CO2 over their entire life cycle which can take decades for the minerals to become saturated with the greenhouse gas. In this research project, "CO2MIN - Mineral Sequestration of CO2", knowledge is generated to address this question and improve the cement industry's climate performance.
