In a world first, researchers at Aalto University have opened a new pilot plant that converts CO2 and slag, the by-product of steel manufacturing, into Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC).
PCC is a valuable mineral product used in e.g. plastics, papers, rubbers and paints. The innovative plant represents the next stage prior commercialization of a new process that consumes CO2 in order to convert a low-value by-product into a highly valuable resource for industry.
