Kharissova et al. (2024): Carbon negative footprint materials: A review

Alena B. Kharissova, Oxana V. Kharissova, Boris I. Kharisov, Yolanda Peña Méndez IN: Nano-Structures & Nano-Objects, 37, 101100,

Herein, the authors describe main definitions and terms of the carbon neutrality and negativity, current and near-future trends in achieving their goals, and corresponding techniques and materials. Global strategies to reach carbon neutrality/negativity are discussed, including green chemistry routes, efficient materials processing, correct materials selection and substitution, use of naturally renewable and recyclable materials, among other definite or synergistic carbon-capture ideas. Carbon negative materials include biochar, several carbon negative concretes and cements, biomass, bamboo-, wood- and grass-derived construction materials, recycled polymers and biopolymers, MOFs and MOF-derived nanocarbons, as well as other nanomaterials and nanocomposites on their basis, including nano-enabled membranes and filters.
