The use of Accelerated Carbonation Technology for the treatment of Thermal Residues and the manufacture of a sustainable carbon negative aggregate has been developed by Carbon8 following 15 years of award winning research undertaken at Imperial College, London and The University of Greenwich.
Pioneered by leading academics in their field, Professor Colin Hills and Dr Paula Carey, the business has worldwide patents and is currently one of only a few companies in the UK to hold an Environment Agency ‘End of Waste’ agreement, classifying the finished aggregate as a ‘product’.
Following various scaled trials, the first commercial facility was built in spring 2012 at Brandon, Suffolk where we have recently invested over £1.5m building a second line to double its treatment capacity producing over 50,000 tonnes of aggregate per year. Over the next few years Carbon8, with the support of its principal investor, Grundon Waste Management Ltd, wish to build and develop a national network of facilities to become the preeminent recycler of Thermal Residues.
With the unique use of Carbon Dioxide within its treatment process, Carbon8 is ranked within the top 10 companies in the UK for permanent Carbon Capture from a commercialised process. It is also believed to be the only company in the world that produces an aggregate that is truly carbon negative winning numerous industry awards for its green credentials.
Carbon8 is a genuine ‘world’s first’, on a number of fronts and has attracted interest from both the UK Government and the international community.
