We have commissioned an accredited environmental consultancy to undertake a detailed analysis of the uptake of C02 by the IBA.  The calculations for replacement of cement/aggregate using IBA /catalyst are being determined, to demonstrate the CO2 savings globally. The process can be utilised on a global scale to save many millions of tonnes of C02.

Research studies have found waste incineration to be a better option than sending waste to landfill.  Incineration offers significant savings of greenhouse gases compared to landfill and also avoids the main consequences of landfill leaking toxic chemicals and methane gas (a Climate change gas), into the ground and atmosphere.

We can help concrete manufactures offer a significantly lower carbon concrete as our unique admixture will make up to 60% by volume of the concrete.  By replacing high C02 emitting cement and other virgin quarried materials, we will work with manufacturers to reduce their carbon footprint and achieve their climate targets.  We are interested in hearing from you if you think we can be of assistance.

 

We are already working with a number of waste to energy businesses and would be happy to discuss potential opportunities with other waste to energy organisations so they too can avoid sending their ash to landfill and become a truly sustainable part of the Circular Economy. We are confident that we can offer the best environmental option for these companies, while allowing 100% recycling of this waste component.

Our unique admixture will make up to 60% by volume of the concrete and aggregates.  By replacing high C02 emitting cement and other virgin quarried materials, we will work with manufacturers to reduce their carbon footprint and help to achieve their climate targets.

Our process absorbs C02 from the atmosphere.  What’s more our technology ensures heavy metals are bonded, preventing leaching and further pollution both now and in the future.

Our low carbon admix has impressive environmental credentials and performs well on a practical level.  It not only bonds with more strength than traditional cement, but also has less permeability.  Our technology also significantly enhances the heat resistance, physical and chemical properties of the cement.

It’s a form of ash produced in waste to energy incineration facilities derived from the incineration of household and municipal waste.  2025 sees new legislation from the Scottish Government banning most landfill and thereafter the majority of this waste will be incinerated.  However, this isn’t a sustainable solution for the Circular Economy as normally the ash still goes to landfill.  Recycl8 won’t bury the ash but is going to turn into a useful sustainable product.

We are well through a testing programme with our research partner CE Geochem and are on track to deliver our highly sustainable admix by November 2021.  We are also working with the appropriate environmental agencies to ensure that the IBA will be removed from a waste category.
