Highlight Seminar: Karen Scrivener, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne
ABSTRACT Concrete is the most used material in the world accounting for around half of everything human beings produce each year. Although it is a materials with low intrinsic environmental impact, the colossal volume produced means that it accounts for some 5-8% of anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Demand is likely to double by 2050 due to […]
Highlight Seminar: Eric Oelkers, University College London
Professor Eric Oelkers, of the University College London, presented “Carbon Storage in Basalts: The CarbFix Story 2006-2015” as part of the 2015-2016 Highlight Seminar Series. ABSTRACT The CARBFIX was launched at the height of optimism surrounding the use of carbon capture and storage (CCS) to mitigate the increasing atmospheric carbon concentration and associated consequences.
