Lafarge Canada is looking to decarbonise the production of its concrete through the integration of Carbon Upcycling Technologies’ CO2-embedded concrete additive.

The duo on Tuesday (6th July) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the effort that will support Lafarge’s net-zero 2030 pledge that aims to accelerate green construction. 

As well as providing environmental benefits, it is also through that Carbon Upcycling’s technology makes concrete stronger.

Lafarge has already said it will explore opportunities to expand Carbon Upcycling’s operating capacity by developing larger processing facilities.

Commenting on the commitment, Brad Kohl, President, and CEO of Lafarge Western Canada, said, “The results we’ve seen with Carbon Upcycling are really promising.”

“Across our industry, we are all driven to capture and utilise CO2 wherever we can.”

Apoorv Sinha, CEO and Co-Founder of Carbon Upcycling Technologies, added, “By collaborating with Lafarge we are taking a meaningful step towards providing the construction community with the tools that will define the circular carbon infrastructure and the impending carbon age.”
