Statement Regarding the IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5C

October 8th, 2018|

Prior to the release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, experts anticipated it to be the “most critical and controversial report on climate change.” As shown in today’s report, it is increasingly clear that transitioning to renewable energy is not enough if we are to meet our climate goals. We are faced with a critical need to accelerate the decarbonization of heavy industrial sectors and the removal of some CO2 from the atmosphere.

New BCN DOE Grant- Storing CO2 in Built Infrastructure: CO2 Carbonation of Precast Concrete Products

November 14th, 2017|

A team of Beyond Carbon Neutral researchers has received a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy for a research proposal related to work based on preliminary BCN seed funding. This project aims to promote carbon capture and storage technologies within coal-fired plant infrastructure and demonstrate economically viable CO2 storage opportunities. Precast technology developed from this study would have a substantially lower energy footprint, and could possibly be carbon negative due to stored CO2, the use of waste heat and fly ash from coal-based power plants, elimination of prestressing steel, recycling of waste streams from steel and mining industries, and the use of plant fibers. Potential benefits of this work could include development of low-CO2 emissions infrastructure products with longer lifetimes than current technology, incorporation of would-be industrial waste aggregate materials into construction, and creation of ubiquitous CO2 storage in the built environment.

Sequestering Carbon at the Bottom of the Pyramid: Actionable Science for Climate Change Mitigation

Most climate change mitigation measures can only focus on reducing future emissions. This is particularly true for interventions and policies that target the most important emission source, the burning of fossil fuels.
