Carbon Sequestration in Construction Materials


  • CO2 contributes 75 % of these greenhouse gases
  • Carbon capture and sequestration in the construction industry through mineral carbonation technology.
  • Terrestrial carbon sequestration through construction materials - a rapidly growing stream of carbon utilization.
  • Recent research activities at KFUPM in this area and findings
