How CarbiCrete Creates a Cement-Free CMU

Take a look at the CarbiCrete process, which uses groundbreaking technology to transform industrial waste into a valuable building product: a cement-free concrete masonry unit (CMU).

Why Us?

Cement production accounts for 8% of the world’s GHG emissions. As the green building market continues to grow, the construction industry is looking for reliable materials that reduce cement use. When compared to cement-based CMUs, CarbiCrete CMUs exhibit equivalent or better mechanical and durability properties. They have the same water absorption properties, but higher compressive strength by up to 30% and display better freeze/thaw resistance. CarbiCrete-enabled masonry products offer the same or better quality and performance that users expect, but without the emissions associated with cement production.

Lifecycle Assessment

CarbiCrete’s net carbon-negative impact has been validated by a third-party verifier. It starts with a 100% reduction of  carbon dioxide emissions associated with cement production. It drives net negative emissions with the permanent sequestration of carbon dioxide that is mineralized in the product during curing. Even when additional transportation and conversion impacts are considered, CarbiCrete’s full LCA results in net carbon-negative concrete products.
