More Cement, Less CO2

Posted January 10, 2012 7:15 AM

Researchers are looking at new ways to analyze a material that releases massive amounts of carbon dioxide during it's manufacture, i.e. portland cement. Using a diamond anvil cell to validate computer modeling of the material's nanostructure, they hope to reduce carbon emissions while simultaneously producing stronger cements.

The preceding article is a "sneak peek" from Lab Equipment, a newsletter from GlobalSpec. To stay up-to-date and informed on industry trends, products, and technologies, subscribe to Lab Equipment today.

Messing about with the composition of cement is a dodgy proposition. If you remember, back in the 60's they tried adding Alumina to make it lighter and dry faster. It was fine for the first 5-10 years......................Oooops!

There are many ways to reduce CO2 from the current cement production process without changing the cement structure. By all means do the research and make samples to test. I will look forward to buying it in 60 years after the tests have proved it is OK.
