Projects seek concrete solutions to global warming

4349_1150 copyAlong with co-researchers from across the University, Claire White, an assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering and the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, is exploring ways to manufacture cement with a much lower contribution to global warming. Some of these cement substitutes completely eliminate the need to burn limestone at high temperature, a critical step in standard cement production that accounts for much of the CO2 emissions.
