CarbiCrete is a Montreal-based carbon removal technology company that is developing innovative, low-cost building solutions that contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
The company’s patented technology, first developed at McGill University, enables the production of cement-free, carbon-negative concrete. The process uses an industrial by-product – the slag from steel factories – to replace cement as a binding ingredient in precast concrete products. The process injects CO2 into the fresh concrete to provide strength, while permanently sequestering CO2 within the resulting products.
CarbiCrete’s licenses its technology to concrete makers and oversees the retrofit required to implement the process. The company’s corporate headquarters and R&D facility are located in Lachine, Quebec, and pilot project that will see production ramp up to 25,000 CMUs per day is currently underway at Patio Drummond, a hardscape manufacturer in Drummondville, Quebec.
