"After its manufacture, cement naturally sequesters CO2 from the atmosphere in a process called
“carbonation.” Carbonation rates vary considerably with concrete properties, which differ by
world region. Globally, roughly a third of cement’s process emissions are re-absorbed within the
first two years, and over the course of decades, this share rises to 48%. Cement carbonation is
relevant on a global scale but has been omitted from national emissions inventories and global
