• BASF participates in $27 million financing round;
• Solidia’s technology platform produces cementitious materials for construction in a process that consumes CO2.

The current round of financing also included Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers, BP Ventures and Bright Capital, the venture arm of Ru-Com Corporation.

Solidia Technologies enables sustainable production of a new generation of building and construction materials. Concrete and building materials made with this novel technology have excellent physical properties, lower life-cycle cost and smaller environmental footprint than concrete. The technology uses CO2 as a reactant, consuming and sequestering this greenhouse gas during production.

“The materials produced by this process will have disruptive potential in the building and construction industry. They have better mechanical properties than traditional concrete and show no shrinkage, high compressive strength and low permeability,” said Dr. Pulakesh Mukherjee, Principal at BASF Venture Capital. The sustainable production process used by Solidia Technologies enables production of fully cured concrete pieces within just a few hours.

“The global building and construction market offers a significant opportunity for this innovative technology. Our process has been developed in the pilot scale to date and BASF can add a lot of value with its knowledge of chemistry and process engineering. We are optimistic that joining forces will enable us to target and rapidly deploy scalable applications,” said Thomas Schuler, Chief Executive Officer of Solidia Technologies.

Products manufactured with Solidia’s process are stronger and more durable than traditional building materials. As a result, cement manufacturers can produce low-environmental impact products with existing equipment for the concrete industry. This new class of materials can then be used both indoor and outdoor for a variety of products, ranging from pavers to structural precast concrete.
