Concrete and carbon sequestration 

The bottom line? We’re inching closer toward an uninhabitable planet of our own making — even faster than once thought. To get ourselves back on track, we need to continue curbing our emissions to avoid making the problem worse. At the same time, we’ll need to remove a trillion tons of CO2 from the atmosphere, says Peter Fiekowsky, Founder of the Foundation for Climate Restoration.

Concrete and carbon sequestration 

@solarpunkgnome I wonder how well this would pair with the volcanic ash + seawater Roman cement recipe that was rediscovered a while back? That's more energy-efficient than Portland cement, so coupled with a carbon-sequestering aggregate there could be some really good numbers there. Ecologically ethical brutalism, here we come!

Volcanic ash makes for wonderfully fertile soil, let's not make buildings out of it.

I imagine there are a lot of other compounds that would work for the cement bit, but my background is more in electronic than structural ceramics.🤷
