Switzerland: Holcim has invested in CO2 mineralisation technology developer Neustark. Neustark aims to remove 1Mt of atmospheric CO2 by 2030 and sequester it in recycled construction and demolition waste. The company’s technology achieved Gold Standard certification as a method of CO2 removal in March 2022. Holcim says that its investment advances its group commitment to putting clean technologies to work towards achieving net zero.
Holcim’s Europe regional head Miljan Gutovic said “At Holcim, we are working to decarbonise building for a net zero future, and Neustark’s technology helps us reach this goal. After the successful demonstration of Neustark’s solution in Switzerland, we are ready to scale up this carbon removal technology globally.”
