Carbon Upcycling Technologies has announced this year’s first delivery of carbon dioxide-enhanced fly ash to Burnco Rock Products Ltd. as part of a groundbreaking initiative to deploy low-carbon concrete in the City of Calgary. The 200-tonne delivery marks a significant milestone in the parties’ collaboration and stems from a $4.4 million Circular Economy Grant that Emissions Reduction Alberta awarded to Carbon Upcycling last year. 

Carbon Upcycling sourced the ash from a landfill, processing it to concrete-grade level with a proprietary technology that captures CO2 from industrial flue gas. “By harnessing CO₂ and waste materials, we are not only mitigating environmental impact but also driving innovation in sustainable construction practices,” says Carbon Upcycling CEO Apoorv Sinha. The partnership with Burnco exemplifies a commitment to innovation and sustainability in the construction industry, he adds.  

“We are excited to continue our partnership with Carbon Upcycling and further deploy low-carbon concrete in our construction projects,” affirms Burnco’s Norm Kuntz. “This approach aligns with our sustainability goals and will enable us to offer our customers environmentally friendly solutions without compromising on quality or performance.”
