Concrete4Change (C4C) is an R&D licensing company, helping concrete manufacturers and the construction industry achieve net zero carbon neutrality. Utilising the full natural potential of concrete for the permanent lockdown of CO2. Our technology will become the global standard technology for utilising CO2 and reducing embodied emissions for ready-mix and pre-cast concrete applications. C4C is developing a technology that can create net-zero concrete at a cheaper cost, reducing the need for expensive materials and reduce harm to the planet as a result. Learn more abuot C4C here.
Ecocem is a pioneer of high-performance products and technology that significantly reduce CO2 emissions in the cement and construction industries. An independent company, with a world-class innovation centre and manufacturing facilities across Europe, Ecocem reduces the amount of clinker – the key source of CO2 emissions in cement. Our latest technology, ACT, is a next generation innovation which can deliver a globally scalable 70% reduction in the cement industry’s carbon footprint as early as 2035, with no significant increase in production costs or change to manufacturing processes. Learn more from Ecocem’s website.
Founded in 2021, ecoLocked is a startup leveraging carbon removal and turning it into a resource for the construction industry. The company has developed an innovative concrete admix material using biocarbon, a carbon negative material made from waste biomass, which allows them to store captured carbon in buildings, reduce emissions from cement clinker production, and provide functional benefits such as better thermal insulation.

GreenMade is a French start-up committed to significantly reducing the carbon emissions of the cement industry. It will use an innovative low-carbon hydraulic binder – the Alpha Sigma Activator (ASA) – principally composed of anhydrite III, for mainstream products in the construction industry. GreenMade has patented an innovative production process that dehydrates gypsum to obtain a highly-reactive molecule which can then be used for both structural (cement) purposes and non-structural applications.
Hoffman Green Cement Technologies
Founded in 2014, Hoffmann Green Cement Technologies designs, produces and distributes innovative extremely low-carbon cements – with a carbon footprint 5 times lower than traditional cement – that present, at equivalent dosage and with no alteration to the concrete manufacturing process, superior performances than traditional cement. The Group has industrialised a genuine technological breakthrough based on alterations to cement’s composition and the creation of a heating-free, clinker-free and low-energy consumption manufacturing process making it a leading and unique player on a cement market that has not undergone any significant changes in the last 200 years.
