Holcim says the collaboration builds on its commitment to putting clean technologies to work for a net-zero future, from carbon capture, storage and utilization to carbon dioxide removal.
Miljan Gutovic, Holcim region head Europe, commented: “At Holcim, we are working to decarbonize building for a net-zero future and neustark’s technology helps us reach this goal. After the successful demonstration of neustark’s solution in Switzerland, we are ready to scale up this carbon removal technology globally.”
The proprietary mineralisation technology pioneered by neustark involves capturing CO2, liquifying it and then binding it within construction demolition materials during the concrete recycling process, enabling building solutions that are both circular and low-carbon.
Holcim says that neustark’s goal to remove 1 million tons of CO2 from the atmosphere by 2030 advances its own mission to decarbonise building and drive circular construction. Holcim adds that its investment and strategic collaboration will help neustark scale its technology globally to build a net-zero future for people and the planet.
