Building on its commitment to accelerating green growth, Lafarge Canada, a leader in sustainable building materials, announced a partnership with CarbiCrete, a climate tech company at the forefront of eco-friendly construction solutions.
This collaboration emphasises sustainability, innovation, and the transformation of waste into a valuable resource.
Lafarge's St. Constant - Montreal East manufacturing cluster is at the forefront of this initiative. The Lafarge team will process the material used in the CarbiCrete manufacturing process, a byproduct of the steel industry, which often goes to landfills but is now repurposed as a vital ingredient in CarbiCrete's carbon-negative concrete block technology.
"We are committed to reducing our environmental footprint and leading the way in sustainable construction”, expressed 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."
The partnership with Carbicrete enables the development of a new product for customers like Patio Drummond, utilising technology to produce concrete blocks free of traditional cement to showcase this collaboration's real-world application and impact on building projects across the Province of Quebec.
“Collaborating with Lafarge allows us to leverage long-established infrastructure and years of expertise in processing steel-related byproducts”, says 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 mineralisation.”
With a shared commitment to sustainability and innovative construction solutions, Lafarge and Carbicrete are set to shape the construction industry. The aim is to minimise the built environment's environmental footprint and contribute to creating a more sustainable world.
