Lafarge Canada Inc., a member of Holcim Group and a leader in sustainable and innovative building solutions, and Canadian carbon technology innovator Hyperion Global Energy Corp. have announced the launch of Hyperion’s patented Tandem Carbon Recycling System© pilot.

This pioneering process advances circularity by capturing and transforming carbon emissions into high-performance mineral components used to make sustainable building solutions such as low-carbon concrete and other materials.

The pilot project, currently in operation at Lafarge’s Bath Cement Plant (ON), involves the testing of Hyperion’s net-zero mineral solutions for advanced concrete such as Lafarge’s ECOPact®, the broadest range of low-carbon concrete globally, which can lower embedded carbon between 30 – 90% compared to standard concrete without any compromise in performance.

The joint effort will further develop and scale Hyperion’s proprietary Tandem Carbon Recycling technology, a drop-in system that captures and transforms waste carbon emissions into high purity minerals that permanently store carbon. Hyperion’s novel reactive mineralisation process achieves up to 98% capture efficiency of carbon dioxide emissions, producing innovative mineral components that enhance the density and strength of concrete, among other industrial uses.

“Our collaboration with Hyperion marks an exciting milestone in our decarbonisation journey and the advancement of our circular construction technologies”, affirmed David Redfern, President & CEO of Lafarge (Eastern Canada). “We look forward to advancing our Net Zero strategy by leveraging carbon utilisation technology like Hyperion’s, enabling us to further reduce CO2 emissions from our operations while at the same time producing innovative and sustainable building solutions.”

“Working together with an innovative partner like Lafarge on this exciting pilot project allows us to apply our proprietary carbon recycling technology to large-scale industries, and make an immediate, measurable reduction on carbon emissions. At the same time, we are advancing our vision to offer a scalable and affordable decarbonisation solution for industry, and a market-driven profit incentive on the cost of carbon removal", said Heather Ward, CEO & Co-Founder of Hyperion.

The pilot currently has the capacity to remove up to 1000 tpy of CO2 from plant operations, with potential to scale the system 10x over the next year. This represents a 500% scale-up of Hyperion’s novel technology since its original prototype as part of the global Carbon XPRIZE competition. The current system was fully manufactured in Ontario, working with local suppliers and trades, along with Hyperion’s team of skilled industrial engineers.
