Abstract

Brent Constantz, founder, CEO, and president of Calera Corporation, felt a surge of optimism as he gazed at the recently commissioned prototype flue gas processing line at Calera's R&D facility in Moss Landing, California. It was late May 2009, and Calera was an early-stage venture-backed company headquartered in Los Gatos, California with a promising vision to reverse global warming and ocean acidification by adapting one of nature's oldest processes: carbonate mineralization.
