Carbon Negative Cement by Novacem

September 12th, 2011 by retail design blog

Material ConneXion, an international team with a wide spectrum of material expertise recently awarded its material of the year prize to Novacem for an innovative discovery called carbon negative cement. According to the producers, this material is based on magnesium silicates. This means it not only requires less heating but it is also able to absorb CO2 from the environment as it hardens, making it a “green” construction product. “Our award for Material of the Year celebrates the power of material innovation to enhance the world in which we live—from our built environment to the designs that we interact with on a daily basis,” asserted George M. Beylerian, Founder & CEO of Material ConneXion. As you are probably aware, regular cement is responsible for a large quantity of CO2 emissions, which is probably why this innovation made its way to the top in the world of construction materials.
