Cast in Carbon


A construction material that stores carbon emissions

Cast in Carbon aims to reverse the carbon cycle by removing excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and reducing carbon emissions generated through the construction process. Biochar is a new construction material through which carbon can be stored within building structures, converting built spaces into ‘carbon sinks’. It has been successfully tested as a replacement material in various cement-based composites and has displayed the added benefits of being lightweight, providing thermal insulation and allowing for passive cooling.
