Strong and resilient.
Critical to building reliable infrastructure worldwide.
Responsible for nearly 10% of CO₂ emissions.
Our XPRIZE-winning process technology creates ultra-low carbon concrete by avoiding cement and mineralizing atmospheric CO₂.
It’s ready for use in existing plants today. Without compromise to price, performance, or plant operations.

WHAT WE DO
CarbonBuilt's core technology emerged out of the Institute for Carbon Management at the University of California, Los Angeles. Led by third-generation civil engineer Gaurav Sant, the UCLA team demonstrated that dilute CO₂ streams such as those from industrial emissions could be cost-effectively converted into concrete using widely available low-cost and low-carbon materials.
In early 2021, the UCLA CarbonBuilt team was awarded the prestigious NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE, the grand prize in five-year-long global contest designed to foster and fund the development of breakthrough technologies that convert CO₂ emissions into usable products.
The following month, CarbonBuilt was one of just six companies to secure a carbon purchase removal contract from Stripe in its second year of making such commitments. Based on its analysis of Stripe and Microsoft’s 2020 and 2021 carbon removal purchases, the non-profit CarbonPlan rated CarbonBuilt as best-in-class within the concrete mineralization space.
Today, CarbonBuilt is partnering with concrete product manufacturers to grow their top line while significantly increasing profitability, all enabled by the production of low carbon products using CarbonBuilt’s technology.
CarbonBuilt offers benefits for three core groups. For heavy industries seeking ways to reduce CO₂ emissions, our turnkey projects offer a low cost route to do so. For the building industry, we offer on-spec concrete products that help projects achieve LEED certification or other sustainability criteria. Finally, we enable concrete producers to increase profitability while differentiating from competitors by meeting a growing demand for more sustainable concrete.
