Orica Expand wings in Research on Carbon dioxide capture technology

VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA: Orica will support a world-first research pilot plant, which will trial a technology that transforms captured carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions into forms of solid carbonate for future safe disposal or use in ‘green’ building materials. Orica, together with both the Commonwealth and New South Wales Governments, will fund the establishment of a CO2 mineral carbonation research pilot plant at the University of Newcastle, Australia.

The project will undertake fundamental and industrial research into mineral carbonation technology. “Orica was a strong supporter of the research initiative, which holds the promise of a permanent and safe solution in the field of carbon abatement,” said Ian Smith, Managing Director and CEO, Orica.
