Processes at ambient temperature and pressure
Nature over human designs

Below shallow sea waters, corals of diverse colors absorb carbon dioxide and combine it with calcium oxide to build calcium carbonate structures that are key for their survival. The most remarkable fact is that this is performed at ambient temperature and pressures. With the goal of looking for solutions about carbon emissions, the company Fortera ® has designed an analogue process in which it is possible to produce concrete through the same principle, using a low energy process that employs carbon dioxide as a resource.
