UCLA team recognised for carbon capture technology


Carbon Upcycling UCLA, a group from UCLA School of Engineering, has been recognised for its first-of-its-kind carbon capture technology which is supported by a $1.9m grant from the US Department of Energy.

The system developed by the researchers aims to decrease the emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) from a coal-burning power plant by turning waste gas into concrete-based building products.

The carbon-to-concrete technology captures the CO2 before it exits the power plant, reducing emissions to the atmosphere.
