Concrete is the most widely used man-made material in existence. Cement is a key ingredient in concrete. However, it comes with a massive carbon footprint, accounting for approximately 8% of the world’s carbon dioxide emissions. Carbon Corp brings forth a technology that not only makes concrete stronger but also CO2 emission-free. This ground-breaking, decarbonization ERA project builds on Carbon Corp’s XPRIZE award-winning Genesis Device® to generate lime (calcium oxide; CaO) for cement as well as produce valuable carbon nanomaterials from captured carbon along the way to create a zero-carbon emission cement production process. The technology delivers industrial transformation, by bringing an existing, highly important process into the 21st century with a net zero process.
