Page last modified
April 11 2024

Carbon8 Systems’ Accelerated Carbonation Technology (ACT), enables the safe and permanent storage of captured CO2 in products for the construction industry, while diverting residues from landfill. C8S delivers decarbonisation solutions, by converting CO2 and industrial residues into products with desirable performance characteristics for the construction industry.

The lightweight carbon negative aggregate, with various applications in construction, are valuable high-performing alternatives to natural aggregate and reduce the carbon footprint of any construction project. ​

The CO2ntainer is the realisation of the technology as a compact, mobile CCUS solution. It allows for frictionless transportation and implementation, avoiding disruption in production.​
