By UCLA Samueli Newsroom

The Los Angeles Times profiled a team of UCLA engineers in the finals of a multimillion-dollar international competition to turn the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide into commercially viable products. The CO2Concrete team makes concrete from “upcycled” carbon dioxide that would otherwise escape into the atmosphere. Team members Gaurav Sant, professor of civil and environmental engineering, and project scientists Gabe Falzone and Iman Mehdipour are featured. The article also quotes Emily Carter, distinguished professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering and an expert on sustainability and energy, about incentivizing green-technology development.”
