Title: Gaia Engineering - An Economic Approach to solving Climate Change, Water and Waste Problems
Appears on pages(s):
Abstract:Gaia Engineering involves building with man made carbonate to solve the problem of global warming. The technology platform is potentially profitable because it utilises carbon dioxide as a low cost resource to produce cement and aggregates for concretes and other building components and has as a by product fresh water. Importantly there are no legacies for future generations to deal with and the solution does not depend on a high long term price for carbon or carbon trading, both so far not delivered by an arguably failed Kyoto process.
