Magnesium oxides derived from magnesium silicates

3

Technology Description

Cements based on magnesium oxides derived from magnesium silicates (MOMS) are, in principle, able to counterbalance or even absorb more CO2 than the amount released in the manufacturing process while curing (i.e. yielding net negative CO2 emissions). This characteristic would only have a true environmental advantage if the magnesium oxides are provided from natural magnesium sources free of carbon, such as magnesium silicate rocks, in contrast to magnesium carbonate.

Relevance for Net Zero

MOMS can, in principle, counterbalance or even absorb more CO2 than the amount released in the manufacturing process while curing, if magnesium oxides are provided from natural magnesium sources free of carbon. However, it is still at an early stage of development and would require considerable improvements to compete with alternative low-emission cement options.
