A team of interdisciplinary researchers, including J.R. DeShazo (Luskin School of Public Affairs, department of Public Policy and Director of the Luskin Center for Innovation) and Gaurav Sant (Henry Samueli Fellow in Civil and Environmental Engineering), have created a new building material called CO2NCRETE. The material would be made from carbon captured from power plant smokestacks and could potentially eliminate a huge source of greenhouse gas emissions.
