We believe in clean, green and novel material innovations for the built environment.
We need to produce industrial materials such as cement, metals, plastics and chemicals without the emissions to create better, zero-emissions green materials that create a new kind of built environment. We have the technology and the urgency to build a fossil free world, and we need to see the built environment as an opportunity to build community and innovation beyond utility alone.
More than anything, we need to rethink cement.
We look for technology to decarbonise cement and build the world with zero-carbon, zero-waste, sustainable, green cement. After water, concrete is the most widely used substance on the planet; but concrete is tipping us into a climate catastrophe. It produces 8% of the world’s CO2 emissions. Portland cement, the world’s standard, uses limestone and accounts for 55% of cement emissions. Let’s rethink cement. We are interested in solutions that reduce or replace cement use and decarbonise cement for carbon negative cement.
