The carbonation of industrial residues can be used to reduce CO2 emissions by CO2 sequestration. In this report a selection of suitable residues is made. A first selection step is made on the basis of a set of required residue properties. A literature overview on properties of selected residues and on carbonation experiments reported with these residues is given. The chemistry during carbonation is discussed and the effect of carbonation on the leaching properties of the materials is studied. Finally, the carbon dioxide sequestration potential of selected residues is calculated and residues are selected for carbonation experiments.
