Professor Claire White has been awarded $3 million this January from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to lead the interdisciplinary effort on the decarbonization of concrete. She will lead a consortium of researchers and practitioners from academia – Princeton University, Cornell University, and University of Texas at Austin – and industry – Ash Grove Cement Company –  on “Inter-grinding of Waste Activators and Low-grade Calcined Kaolin Clay for One-part Alkali-activated Concrete Technology“. This project is part of the recently announced $171 million from DOE Industrial Efficiency and Decarbonization Office for 49 projects that will reduce industrial greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and move the nation closer to a net-zero economy.
