Associate Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Edward K. and Linda L. Rice Endowed Chair in Materials Science Gaurav Sant published a study in the journal Industrial and Engineering Chemistry Research with co-authors Dr. Mathieu Bauchy Assistant Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Magdalena Balonis, a research scientist, postdoctoral scholars Kirk Vance and Isabella Pignatelli, and doctoral scholar Gabriel Falzone, all of UCLA.  The research could eventually lead to methods of cement production that give off no carbon dioxide, the gas that composes 82 percent of greenhouse gases. Dr. Sant and his team found that carbon dioxide released during cement manufacture could be captured and reused.
