Accelerated Carbon
Technology (ACT)

What is ACT?

Carbonation happens naturally but very slowly at the levels of CO₂ in the atmosphere. Carbon8 Systems discovered that by engineering the conditions of exposure to CO₂, we can dramatically speed up the carbonation reaction, and we have developed an economically viable form of carbon capture and utilisation.

With 25 years of R&D, we have the knowhow to control this process, and the expertise to apply it across a number of different industries. We call it Accelerated Carbonation Technology (ACT).

We use ACT to engineer valuable, low-carbon products, such as aggregates for low carbon building materials, and fertilisers. The technology also has a unique combination of benefits that make a substantial contribution to the circular economy.
