Research title: Determining processes of co2 capture with steel slags: implications for mitigating rising co2 levels

Research Summary

My research focuses on using alkaline waste materials, produced from steel and iron industry, to capture and sequester carbon dioxide. I am looking on the molecular structure of steel slag, the solid phases within it, its chemical composition, and its reaction with carbon dioxide either through direct carbonation, or enhanced weathering.
