Carbonation of concrete

Carbonation is a slow and continuous process that progresses from the outer surface moving inwards. Over the lifecycle of concrete, carbonation will result in the reabsorption of around a third of the CO2 emitted when making cement, significantly reducing the whole-life CO2 footprint of both the cement and the concrete for which it is used.

Concrete - Wikipedia

Concrete is a composite material composed of fine and coarse aggregate bonded together with a fluid cement (cement paste) that hardens (cures) over time. In the past, lime based cement binders, such as lime putty, were often used but sometimes with other hydraulic cements, (water resistant) such as a calcium aluminate cement or with Portland cement to form Portland cement concrete (named for
