Research Brief: Life Cycle Carbon Uptake of the United States Pavement Network

Concrete Pavements in the United States Could Absorb 5% of Cement Emissions and help fight Climate Change
January 27, 2021

During a natural chemical process known as carbonation, concrete binders exposed to the air can break down and sequester atmospheric CO2. In this research brief, CSHub postdoc Hessam AzariJafari quantifies the potential carbon uptake of U.S. pavements due to carbonation.
