A team of interdisciplinary researchers at UCLA has been working on a unique solution that may help eliminate sources of greenhouse gases. Their plan would create a closed-loop process: capturing carbon from power plant smokestacks and using it to create a new building material that would be fabricated using 3D printers. “What this technology does is take something that we have viewed as a nuisance — carbon dioxide that’s emitted from smokestacks — and turn it into something valuable,” said J.R. DeShazo, professor of public policy at UCLA.
