ecoLocked is a startup turning captured carbon into a resource for the construction industry. We develop climate-friendly concrete by using biocarbon, a CO2-negative material made from waste biomass.

Our biocarbon admix materials allow to permanently store sequestered CO2 in buildings, reduce emissions from cement clinker production, and provide functional benefits such as pollutant absorption and better thermal insulation.

“There will be no winner-takes-all solution to decarbonize the construction sector. The complexity of this industry demands a technology stack that can be flexibly applied in each specific situation. This is why ecoLocked Materials is compatible with a broad range of other decarb technologies for concrete and we proactively work with other innovators to demonstrate joint impact and bundle resources.”
