In an exciting development in the construction industry, a novel method of producing cement has been introduced that leverages the mineral olivine to create a carbon-negative product. This groundbreaking technique not only reduces the typical carbon emissions associated with cement production but also actively removes CO2 from the atmosphere. The process involves dissolving olivine in acid to extract beneficial compounds that, when combined with CO2, result in a new material that permanently captures carbon. This advancement could significantly transform construction practices, aligning them more closely with environmental sustainability goals.
