Formwork IO's vision Urban Carbon Sequestration (UCS) is based on a new set of carbon offset technology specifically developed for the built environment. The ambition is to transform our urban landscape into dynamic, carbon sequestering environments through the application of Formwork IO’s innovative building elements that absorb and store carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases during production. With the continued rise of urbanization in the foreseeable future, these environments can potentially sequester significant portions of global carbon emissions.
PERMANENT MINERAL SEQUESTRATION
Combined with our proprietary carbon absorbing composite material, our innovative sequestration techniques ensure permanent mineral sequestration of carbon dioxide along with absorption of other GHGs such as NO, N2O and SO2 in our new building elements during production.
SCALABLE SOLUTION THAT FITS IN ANY CITY
Whether new build or retrofit, any urbanized communities with wide adoption of these new carbon sequestering building elements can be transformed into giant carbon sinks with no additional infrastructure needed.
MATERIAL SCIENCE BASED APPROACH TO CARBON NEUTRALITY
With operational carbon trending downwards in our cities in the coming decades, the urgency is to solve embodied carbon from ground up. Material science is the key to unlock and solve the Upfront Carbon Emissions challenge to reach carbon neutrality.
