Carbon Re is an Industrial AI company on a mission to reduce carbon emissions by gigatonnes every year through the use of AI technology. A joint spin-out of Cambridge University and UCL, it is focusing on decarbonizing cement and other foundational materials (such as steel and glass) which are responsible for more than 20% of global emissions. Carbon Re’s first product, Delta Zero Cement uses machine learning to optimize fuel use and quality in cement production.


Ecocem is a pioneer of high-performance technology that significantly reduces CO2 emissions in the cement and construction industries. Its breakthrough technology ACT can reduce the global carbon footprint of the traditional cement manufacturing process by more than half.

For more than 20 years, Ecocem has been developing, manufacturing, and supplying low carbon cement and construction solutions to markets in Europe. It operates from plants in France (2), the Netherlands and Ireland with an annual production of over 2 million tonnes of low-carbon cements.

From Le Grand Paris Express to Dublin’s Aviva Stadium, and the UK’s high-speed railway HS2, Ecocem has achieved a cumulative reduction to date of almost 18 million tonnes CO2 emissions. It would take over 800 million trees to capture this amount of CO2 in a year.

Investors in Ecocem include Saint-Gobain Group, a global leader in light sustainable construction, and Breakthrough Energy Ventures. Ecocem also counts ArcelorMittal, the world’s leading steel and mining company, as a major shareholder in its Ecocem France subsidiary.

An independent company with a world-class innovation centre, Ecocem technology, products, and services can help the cement industry cost-effectively decarbonise by 50 per cent by 2030 – and build a more sustainable future for all.
