Carbon Upcycling Technologies produces CO2-enhanced concrete additives that are used to lower the cement content of concrete by >20%, and as a result lower the carbon footprint, while providing additional improvements to strength and durability.

Carbon Upcycling is a waste and carbon utilization company unlocking a new frontier of circular materials. They’re tackling the biggest problems on the planet – like climate change and industrial waste. With a patented technology platform, they are helping the hard-to-decarbonize sectors of industry transform local industrial byproducts and natural materials into superior additives.

Their first market is cement and concrete, the source of eight percent of global CO2 emissions and growing. Their technology sequesters industrial CO2, reduces the carbon footprint of cement, and improves concrete performance by opening up a new class of locally available, carbon-sequestering cement replacements.

With Carbon Upcycling, cement and concrete producers can now create a superior product using local industrial byproducts and natural materials and save the planet at the same time.
