CO 2 Mineralization—Bridge Between Storage and Utilization of CO 2

CO 2 Mineralization—Bridge Between Storage and Utilization of CO 2 CO 2 mineralization comprises a chemical reaction between suitable minerals and the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide. The CO 2 is effectively sequestered as a carbonate, which is stable on geological timescales. In addition, the variety of materials that can be produced through mineralization could find applications in the marketplace, which makes implementation of the technology more attractive. In this article, we review recent developments and assess the current status of the CO 2 mineralization field. In an outlook, we briefly describe a few mineralization routes, which upon further development have the potential to be implemented on a large scale. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Annual Review of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Annual Reviews

Abstract

CO 2 mineralization comprises a chemical reaction between suitable minerals and the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide. The CO 2 is effectively sequestered as a carbonate, which is stable on geological timescales. In addition, the variety of materials that can be produced through mineralization could find applications in the marketplace, which makes implementation of the technology more attractive. In this article, we review recent developments and assess the current status of the CO 2 mineralization field. In an outlook, we briefly describe a few mineralization routes, which upon further development have the potential to be implemented on a large scale.
