About us

 

We’re a technology company that develops innovative, low-cost building solutions that contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

 

Our patented technology allows manufacturers to produce cement-free, carbon-negative concrete. We are working with construction professionals, retailers and our licensed partners toward realizing our vision of…

 

A world built using cost-effective, carbon-negative construction materials.

 

 

 

Cement-free concrete

 

Conventional concrete is made using Portland cement…but cement production accounts for 5% of the world’s CO2 emissions!

 

Our patented technology, which can be implemented in any concrete products plant with virtually no process flow disruption, makes it possible to produce concrete products without using cement. Products made using our technology are less expensive, more durable and more environmental than their cement-based counterparts…all while ridding the environment of harmful emissions.

 

More durable...more sustainable...more cost-effective

 

The primary binder in our concrete is steel slag—a by-product of steel-making, typically destined for a landfill.

 

Using a process called carbonation activation, CO2 is injected into the wet concrete to give it its strength. As a result, any product made using Carbicrete technology permanently sequesters CO2, while turning industrial waste (steel slag) into a high-quality construction product.

 

Products made in this fashion meet all of the same specifications as cement-based concrete products, have lower material costs, possess the same mechanical properties, and are more durable.

 

Carbon-negative concrete

 

Because we don’t use cement, the production of which emits a massive amount of CO2, and then sequester CO2 within the concrete, products made using our technology are carbon-negative.
