Converting Carbon Dioxide into Building Materials

Carbon dioxide captured from industrial factories can be repurposed as building materials. Startup Blue Planet developed a way to convert carbon dioxide into a limestone coating that can be used to reinforce concrete. The company’s bicarbonate rocks, also produced using captured carbon dioxide, were included in the reconstruction of the San Francisco International Airport. Meanwhile, in Iceland, the Hellisheidi geothermal power plant started a project that could turn carbon dioxide into a solid basalt rock.
