Project Description

Mariana is working to understand and quantify UCSD's carbon footprint and possible mitigation and carbon-offsetting strategies. This will include accurately estimating and measuring the CO2 emissions from flue gas coming from UCSD's Central Utilities Plant. Additionally, this will lead to the exploration of carbon sequestration strategies using emerging technologies in the UC campus.
