STEP cement: Solar Thermal Electrochemical Production of CaO without CO2 emission

Author affiliations

Abstract

New molten salt chemistry allows solar thermal energy to drive calcium oxide production without any carbon dioxide emission. This is accomplished in a one pot synthesis, and at lower projected cost than the existing cement industry process, which after power production, is the largest contributor to anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions.
