Lafarge Canada’s new partnership to drive carbon-free material solutions across Québec
February 2, 2024 By Rock to Road Staff
MONTREAL – Lafarge Canada entered into a partnership with Montreal-based climate tech company CarbiCrete last month to assist in processing the material used in CarbiCrete’s carbon-negative concrete block technology.
CarbiCrete repurposes byproduct from the steel industry that would otherwise be sent to landfills, turning them into sustainable, cement-free building material solutions. 150 kilograms of CO2 are removed for every ton of concrete produced through CarbiCrete’s patented process.
The processing will take place at Lafarge’s St. Constant-Montreal East manufacturing cluster, with product to be used in building projects across the province.
“Collaborating with Lafarge allows us to leverage long-established infrastructure and years of expertise in processing steel-related byproducts,” said CarbiCrete’s CEO, Chris Stern. “This enables us to make an immediate climate impact as we scale the deployment of our technology which reduces embodied carbon in concrete by both avoiding emissions and removing carbon through mineralization.”
