Tom Schuler | TED Countdown
Concrete is all around us: we use it to build our roads, buildings, bridges and much more. Yet over the last 2,000 years, the art of mixing cement and using it to bind concrete hasn’t changed very much — and it remains one of the world’s biggest emitters of carbon. Entrepreneur Tom Schuler previews an innovative way to create concrete, potentially turning it into a carbon sink that traps carbon dioxide from the atmosphere — while producing a viable building material.
This talk was presented at an official TED conference, and was featured by our editors on the home page.
