Building on its commitment to accelerating green growth, Lafarge Canada announced a groundbreaking partnership with climate tech company CarbiCrete. The collaboration emphasizes sustainability, innovation and the transformation of waste into a valuable resource.
The team at Lafarge’s St. Constant – Montreal East manufacturing cluster will process steelmaking byproduct that is a vital ingredient in CarbiCrete’s carbon-negative concrete block technology. CarbiCrete recently commenced binder and production method commercialization through Patio Drummond, a Quebec concrete masonry and hardscapes operator.
“We are committed to reducing our environmental footprint and leading the way in sustainable construction,” said Andrew Stewart, vice president of cement at Lafarge Canada (East). “Our partnership with CarbiCrete is a testament to our dedication to offering sustainable solutions and actively participating in the circular economy.”
“Collaborating with Lafarge allows us to leverage long-established infrastructure and years of expertise in processing steel-related byproducts,” added CarbiCrete 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.”
