CarbiCrete is a Montreal-based carbon removal technology company that is developing innovative, low-cost building solutions which can be implemented in any concrete production plant. The company’s patented technology, first developed at McGill University, enables the production of cement-free, carbon-negative concrete. The process uses an industrial by-product – the slag from steel factories – to replace cement as a binding ingredient in precast concrete products. The process injects CO2 into the fresh concrete to provide strength, while permanently sequestering CO2 within the resulting products.
