Mark Goulthorpe, Associate Professor, Department of Architecture, MIT; Mike Lepech, Professor, Stanford University; Carl Mesters, Chief Scientist, Chemistry & Catalysis, Shell; Steve Nolet, Technology & Production Manager, TPI Composites; Marc Von Keist, Program Manager, ARPA-e; Dewey Johnson, VP, Research & Analysis, Chemical, IHS Markit. Sequestering carbon in building materials is an innovative carbon management solution. What are the applications and innovations for carbon fiber as a construction material? Are carbon buildings the solution for a greener energy future? Can carbon composite replace steel and concrete? Are carbon buildings a “civilization scale” growth market for hydrocarbons?
