Carbon8 Systems is the world leader in the permanent capture
of carbon dioxide using industrial waste and contaminated soils.
Formed in 2006 and a spin-out from the University of Greenwich, Carbon8 Systems has successfully put its patented Accelerated Carbonisation Technology (ACT) into commercial operation to create the world’s first truly carbon-negative aggregate.
Carbon8 Systems’ Managing Director Dr Paula Carey explains: “Built on more than 20 years of award-winning research, ACT technology combines CO2 gas with industrial wastes, such as cement dusts, steel slags, oil shale ash, incinerator ash, paper ash, and contaminated soils, to form new products. They can then be used as carbon negative construction materials by the building industry, thus protecting natural resources, removing the waste from landfill and promoting sustainable construction.”
