Event Description

Concrete is both a big problem and a big opportunity in our climate crisis. It currently accounts for 8% of CO2 emissions which is comparable to the entire agriculture sector. Yet, new low carbon concrete mixes are already in use and scientists are exploring the possibilities of actually sequestering carbon in concrete making it carbon neutral or negative.

In this webinar, you will be able to talk to scientists leading this work and get an update on research, availability and pricing of green concrete as we look to reduce emissions from this important sector.

This webinar is part of a week-long (March 8-12) series of educational events called Sequestration Week devoted to exploring the many ways humans can sequester carbon and help solve our climate crisis.
