Solidia-fying carbon capture

29 September 2020

We’re ramping up our partnership with Solidia Technologies to reduce CO2 across its value chain. Together our solutions not only emit up to 30% less CO2 during cement production, they also capture and store CO2, leading to a 70% carbon reduced concrete.

 
Solidia, a novel technology to produce low carbon bulding materials

Solidia Technologies® is a cement and concrete technology company that makes it easy and profitable to use CO2 to create superior and sustainable building and construction materials. Thanks to Solidia’s patented processes that cure concrete with carbon dioxide (CO2) instead of water, the next-generation Solidia Cement® allows the entire industrial chain to reduce the environmental footprint of concrete of up to 70% compared to traditional concrete. 

Leading the way in low-carbon construction

Together with Solidia LafargeHolcim will continue to develop new innovative solutions focused on non-reinforced concrete structures and paving while also aiming to make it increasingly applicable for structural applications. “Leading the way in low-carbon construction, we plan to facilitate a wider and faster roll-out of the innovative Solidia solution across our operations around the world. By scaling up Solidia’s solutions, we can fast forward our vision of carbon-neutral cities.” Marcel Cobuz, Region Head Europe: Industrial pilots are currently also ongoing in Canada, Germany, France and UK, with further pilots being prepared.
