CarbonBuilt's mission is to enable concrete manufacturing to drive large-scale greenhouse gas reductions through the cost-effective utilization of CO₂ and other industrial waste.
CarbonBuilt’s Reversa™ process transforms carbon dioxide (CO₂ ) taken directly from industrial processes, biomass boilers, or emerging direct air capture solutions into a low carbon, but otherwise "no compromise", precast concrete product. Reversa's breakthrough use of low cost and low carbon materials enables this capital and energy efficient curing process to deliver an 80%+ reduction in concrete's carbon footprint along with a 30%+ financial return.
In April 2021, the UCLA CarbonBuilt team was awarded the prestigious NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE, a technology development competition designed to spur development of new and emerging CO₂ conversion technologies to help solve climate change.
