CO2 Sequestration and Energy-Efficient Concrete: an NSF PIRE TE-CO2NCRETE Workshop

April 16 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm

The production of Portland cement, and with it, concrete, is one of the largest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions. Efforts for decarbonization in the concrete industry are focused primarily on CO2 mitigation strategies within the cement manufacturing process. This workshop will highlight the current research and technological advancements for the design of carbon-neutral concrete targeting zero net greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in civil infrastructure.

The workshop is offered to undergraduate and graduate students, young researchers, faculty, and professionals who wish to advance their knowledge in:

  • Novel materials, experimental methods, and modeling to understand and facilitate the reduction, capture, and mineralization of CO2 in concrete
  • Cutting-edge research approaches for the design of functional concrete to empower renewable electrical energy applications
  • Contemporary research advantage pertaining to future advancements in innovative technological methods.

The workshop includes talks by researchers from UWM, the University of Texas-Arlington, and two researchers from French National Centre for Scientific Research: Roland Pellenq (9:10 a.m.), Daniel Ferry (9:50 a.m.), Maria Konsta Gdoutos, UTA (10:30 a.m.), Jian Zhao, UWM (2:30 p.m.), Habib Tabatabai, UWM (3 p.m.), Panagiotis Danoglidis, UTA (3:30 p.m.), and Konstantin Sobolev, UWM (4 p.m.)
