What is Karbonite?
A revolutionary process using new mineral feed-stocks and a biomass waste stream to create a cleaner, greener production process for the manufacture of cement.
Clean & Cost Effective
Karbonite is an environmentally friendly cementitious process that is 52% more energy efficient and 21% more cost effective than current industry standards.
The binder used is composed of a natural mineral feed-stock, activated at lower temperatures of 750°C- 850°C, rather than 1400°C used in traditional burning of limestone for cement furnaces.
In the activation process, Karbonite releases water, not environmentally damaging toxicants.
Reduction in thermal energy
Less CO2 emitted from the production process
CO2 removed from the atmosphere per tonne produced
Reduced Cement Content & Carbon Footprint
Our innovative technology only requires 0.05% - 25% of cement activation in production, therefore saving 75% - 95.5% of Portland cement used per tonne.
The process involves CO2 sequestration, along with the use of liquid infused CO2 absorption within the molecular structures.
There is 65% less CO2 emitted in the process compared to Portland cement and approximately 125kg of CO2 is removed from the atmosphere per tonne produced.
A Truly Green Solution With Minimal Change Required
Karbonite utilises a biomass waste stream as a binder and water is a by-product in production.
Production can be introduced into existing cement plants with no change required.
It is a truly green solution that has the potential to revolutionise the industry.
