Clinker Factor - Episode #16

18 August 2021 - In this episode, Ian talks to Dr Paula Carey, a Founding Director of Carbon8 Systems. Carbon8 Systems has created a technology which uses mineralisation and carbonation to treat industrial residues such as cement bypass dust, using CO2 captured directly from flue gas, to produce a lightweight aggregate product. Ian and Paula discuss the science behind this process, the increasing applications and relevance of the technology to the cement industry, and how it can help concrete to become carbon negative. 

Cement production is responsible for approximately 7% of global greenhouse gas emissions and is possibly the hardest to abate sector. In this podcast series, the World Cement Association’s CEO, Ian Riley, talks to industry leaders, experts and technological innovators from across the globe, bringing insights and fresh perspectives on how the cement sector can decarbonise and improve sustainability. Suitable for anyone interested in climate change mitigation and industrial sustainability.
