Low Carbon Concrete: Material Evolution

Join Alex and learn about low carbon concrete with Liz Gilligan, CEO of Material Evolution

Concrete is the most used man-made material on earth and with the cement industry contributes 8% of CO2 emissions due to the sheer volume used. Liz Gilligan is co-Founder and CEO of Material Evolution, a disruptive force in the concrete sector producing a low carbon concrete replacement for cement that can reduce (and soon strip out) CO2.

The conversation covers what it takes to disrupt a long-established industry, how machine learning combines with waste recycling to create direct replacements for cement in many applications – and enjoy the story of their evolution to date.

In a pilot plant phase right now, you can learn about their financing round ambitions and the next steps for scaling and commercialising this valuable new material.  With 95% of the material used coming from waste, it’s a great story of what can be achieved with a rethink on core materials.

Decarb Connect supports the acceleration of industrial decarbonisation around the globe. We share insights and facilitate collaborations across the emerging decarbonisation ecosystem. We look specifically at the most energy-intensive industrials from cement, metals and mining, glass, ceramics, chemicals, O&G and many more and help connect them to technology disruptors, investors and advisors.

Through the Decarbonisation Leaders Network (DLN), our members (a cross-sector network of those leading decarbonisation in energy-intensive industries) share insights and experiences as they accelerate their Net Zero plans. Check out Decarb Connect’s offerings and learn about the Decarbonisation Leaders Network members, meetups and benefits.
