This green cement locks in carbon dioxide as it cures instead of releasing it into the air
Every year, the production of cement accounts for 8 percent of global CO2 emissions. If the cement industry were a country, it would be the world's third-largest emitter of CO2. One company working to reduce the carbon footprint of cement is New-Jersey based start-up, Solidia Technologies. Its cement mixture and curing process can cut CO2 emissions by up to 70 percent.
