Reversing climate change. Building materials that clean the atmosphere from CO2


PROBLEM

For each ton of cement, 800kg CO2 is released to the atmosphere causing global warming and all consequences for humans and nature that follows. The cement industry emits almost 10% of the greenhouse gases worldwide every year and will continue to heavily increase due to urbanization of an increasing population.

SOLUTION

Producing climate neutral, and even climate negative, cement-based building materials. CemVision’s process includes using recycled waste material as a raw material, outtake of virgin limestone is minimised, and the cement kiln process is electrified.
