Carbon8's technology will utilize waste CO2 emissions directly from Vicat's facilities to produce lightweight aggregates for cement – essentially forming a circular economy for CO2 within the facility. Since first launching its technology in 2012, Carbon8 has made two key improvements – its technology is now containerized, which means it can integrate in existing facilities and it can now use CO2 captured from flue gas, removing the need for externally sourced pure CO2. These two new features significantly lower the barriers to commercial adoption. As regulations demand net-zero CO2 emissions across all industries, CCU technologies will become more prevalent; clients should engage with Carbon8 and explore partnership opportunities.
