The Montreal company has been named to the 2020 Global Cleantech 100 list by San-Francisco’s Cleantech Group
Montreal, January 17, 2020 – CarbiCrete has been named to the 2020 Global Cleantech 100 list which looks at the most innovative companies in cleantech globally.
The list is curated by Cleantech Group, a San Francisco-based organization that supports the development and marketability of clean technologies. This year, 13,900 companies from 93 countries were considered for the list.
CarbiCrete is commercializing a carbon-negative process for the production of precast concrete. The company’s technology replaces cement in the concrete mix with steel slag and cures it with carbon dioxide, avoiding the GHG emissions associated with cement production, while permanently sequestering CO2 within the resulting concrete products.
“We are tremendously proud to have been named to this list by the Cleantech Group,” says Chris Stern, CarbiCrete’s CEO. “We are in very good company indeed. I would like to congratulate the other innovative firms that were listed and look forward to collaborating with some of them as we work to bring a cost-effective, cement-free concrete solution to the global construction industry.”
In December, CarbiCrete announced that the Environmental division of Harsco Corporation (NYSE: HSC) had made a $3M investment into the company in conjunction with a $2.1M grant awarded to CarbiCrete by Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) to finance a demonstration program supported by a development consortium which includes a commercial concrete block manufacturer.
Carbicrete is a Montreal-based cleantech company developing innovative, low-cost building solutions that contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Carbicrete’s breakthrough patented technology enables the production of cement-free, carbon-negative concrete made with industrial by-products and captured carbon dioxide. Carbicrete.com
