CCS and Power Systems

Carbon Storage - Carbon Use and Reuse


Utilization of CO2 in High Performance Building and Infrastructure Products


Performer: Solidia Technologies Inc.

Project No: FE0004222


Accomplishments


  • A business analysis of LTS materials entry into high-end countertop materials market was completed. The analysis suggests LTS material has the potential to be competitive with stone counter tops, primarily because of direct and indirect cost savings that could be realized from LTS materials improved strength and lighter weight.

  • A milling machine was acquired and successfully used in experiments that correlated particle size with carbonation reaction rate.

  • Specialized instrumentation, needed to observe the reaction processes, was acquired and successfully used to investigate parameter configurations to optimize carbonation reactions rates and yields.
