The process involved – #mineralCarbonation – attempts to take carbon dioxide emissions from power stations and other industrial plants and convert it into solid rock by mixing it with various chemicals and mineral reactants.

#CO2 ... #ClimateChange

The company building the technology, Mineral Carbonation International Pty Ltd, has received funding to build a research pilot plant of the technology, and to undertake further research.
A research pilot plant in Newcastle, Australia will trial world-first technology that turns CO2 emissions into bricks and pavers for the construction industry. Mineral Carbonation International says all coal plants could be retrofit to capture CO2 and manufacture the material.
