The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM) announced the selection of three projects to receive $1.5 million in federal funding for cost-shared research and development (R&D) to explore how carbon-based building materials can support the Administration’s commitment to building a clean energy economy that creates good-paying union jobs and transforms disadvantaged areas into healthy and thriving communities.

The selected projects will investigate the impacts of using carbon-based building materials, including opportunities to develop superior construction materials that offer lower lifecycle carbon dioxide emissions and other improved properties. Superior carbon-based building materials may also contribute to the development of a new industry—creating new jobs for communities that have disproportionately suffered adverse economic, health, environmental, and climate impacts.

 The selected projects follow:

Low Cost, Rapid and Scalable Microwave Carbon-Oree Melt-Casting for Modular Carbon-Based Buildings C-Crete Technologies (Stafford, Texas) aims to complete bench-scale testing, demonstrate the feasibility of modular, carbon-based building prototypes that meet project objectives using a novel, energy-efficient processing technique to convert carbon-based materials to high-performance building components, namely microwave melt-casting. Key features of this technology will include: 1) high-strength, tough and lightweight properties; 2) no external binder via microwave-induced fusion; 3) direct
