Carbon Buster

Carbon Buster – The world’s first carbon-negative building block


Carbon Buster

It seems that British masonry product company Lignacite has finally made their come-back with their newest building block named aptly as the ‘Carbon Buster’. Touted as the world’s first carbon-negative building block, according to the company (which had been in the doldrums for the past few years), this product does have the potential to preserve Lignacite’s work force. However, beyond the scope of their enterprise, the Carbon Buster can have a seriously ‘green’ effect on the construction business of Britain (and even the world).

Created from more than 50 percent recycled aggregate materials, the Carbon Buster is the fruit of the collaborative effort from Lignacite and Carbon8 (with research help from the Greenwich University). In this regard, the recycled materials were actually combined with Carbon8’s pellets (made from thermal residue generated from waste and energy plants). This resultant composite was then mixed with carbon dioxide and water, thus endowing the final composition of Carbon Buster.

In terms of its working scope, the block can actually capture carbon dioxide from the eco-system (at the capacity of 14 kg per ton), thus making it the world’s first carbon-negative building block. This certainly opens up possibilities where future buildings act as synthetic entities that ‘clean up’ our environment, much like their natural counterparts, i.e, the trees.
