Cemex Ventures’ 2024 Construction Cleantech Map delineates five companies in  Carbon Capture, Utilization & Storage (CCUS), Decarbonization Alternatives, Circularity & Waste Management, Water Efficiency, and Design & Architecture verticals. The venture capital arm of Cemex S.A.B. de C.V. released the graphic to spotlight startups and construction companies developing and implementing innovations augmenting the construction industry’s pursuit of carbon dioxide emissions reduction. Among brands on the map that have commercial offerings for concrete producers are New Jersey-based CRDC, recycled-plastic aggregate developer, and Massachusetts-based Sublime Systems, whose electrolysis process yields a low carbon alternative to portland cement. 

The 2024 Cleantech cohort is viewed as redefining the construction technology ecosystem. Cemex Ventures’ team of investment specialists scopes out the most disruptive technologies that reduce CO2 emissions and promote a circular economy. Their activities support Future in Action, a Cemex corporate sustainability program bound by a roadmap spelling aggressive decarbonization goals across a global cement, concrete and aggregates enterprise.
