Hi all,

 

Our research team took part in the conference "Sustainable Solutions for Concrete Structures", which took place in Aix-en-Provence, in France. The conference was dedicated mainly to recent advances in modelling of concrete and concrete structures. As always, more details can be found on:  microlab-m3c4.blogspot.com

 

Cheers!

Terra Preta Soil Technology

Please look at this low cost alternative CO2 Sequestration system.The integrated energy strategy offered by Terra Preta Soil technology may
provide the only path to sustain our agricultural and fossil fueled power
structure without climate degradation, other than nuclear power.

I feel we should push for this Terra Preta Soils CO2 sequestration strategy as not only a global warming remedy for the first world, but to solve fertilization and transport issues for the third world. This information needs to be shared with all the state programs.
 
The economics look good, and truly great if we had CO2 cap & trade in place: 
 
These are processes where you can have your Bio-fuel and fertility too.Terra Preta' soils I feel has great possibilities to revolutionize sustainable agriculture into a major CO2 sequestration strategy.
