Project Type: Research

DESCRIPTION: This project focuses on the synthesis of mineral carbonates as carbon-neutral filler materials during CO2 mineral sequestration. The production of value-added products would improve the overall economic feasibility of the CO2 mineral sequestration technology.

OUTCOMES: This project has resulted in patent applications and several conference presentations. A manuscript is currently in development.
