Have you ever wished for a concrete answer to addressing climate change? All puns aside, Gabriel Falzone’s TEDx talk addresses that topic literally. As a member of the Laboratory for the Chemistry of Construction Materials (LC2) at UCLA, Gabriel Falzone works to extend the service life of concrete, improve its thermal performance, and develop new concrete materials that absorb carbon dioxide. His TEDx talk addresses a groundbreaking way to produce concrete that halves the carbon produced, thereby identifying an innovative way to mitigate climate change through architecture and material science.
