Construction Materials

Cement is the 2nd most used substance on earth after water and Cement industry accounts for approximately 8% of planet-warming CO₂ emissions. By incorporating Biochar in cement related products, it not only sequesters carbon but also significantly reduces the net carbon footprints of these products. We have partnered with leading research institutions as well as industry players to formulate numerous biochar-infused construction materials. Speak to us to find out more about our successes. Together with our partners, we have the capability to develop biochar-infused construction materials formulations based on your project specifications.

Key Benefits of Biochar:

  • ‘Green’ Buildings: Incorporating biochar into construction materials reduces reliance on conventional, carbon-intensive materials like cement, thereby lowering the environmental impact of construction activities. It promotes eco-friendly building practices and contributes to sustainable development.
  • Enhanced Material Properties: Biochar improves the mechanical properties of construction materials. It enhances compressive strength, reduces weight, increases durability, and provides better insulation, making buildings more resilient and energy-efficient.
  • Sustainable Resource: Biochar can be produced from various organic waste materials, such as agricultural residues and forestry by-products, offering a sustainable alternative to traditional construction materials. It helps in waste management by repurposing organic waste into valuable building components.
  • Fire Resistance: Biochar possesses natural fire-retardant properties, improving the fire resistance of construction materials. This is particularly beneficial in enhancing the safety and longevity of buildings.
  • Thermal Insulation: Due to its porous structure, biochar provides effective thermal insulation, regulating temperature within buildings and reducing energy consumption for heating and cooling.
  • Carbon Sequestration: Biochar is produced through pyrolysis, a process that captures carbon from organic materials and converts it into a stable form. Incorporating biochar into construction materials helps sequester carbon, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and mitigating climate change.
