Abstract
Natural systems balance CO2 gas overloads by sequestering it in limestone; this technology uptakes CO2 in a similar way. Making Portland cement accounts for 8-10% of CO2 emissions worldwide. Thus there is a tremendous opportunity to utilize this excess CO2 in a limestone like product, concrete. This coating technology takes up CO2 to provide a permanent CO2 sequestration site in concrete while releasing O2 and enhancing the strength and life span of concrete to create a significant environmental impact.
