Criaterra targets one of the biggest and most urgent climate challenges in the building industry: the process of kiln firing of materials, a process that is required in the manufacture of cement and ceramic products that makes the building industry one of the biggest carbon emitters globally.
Criaterra developed a low temperature patent-protected process for manufacturing construction products through a cross-disciplinary scientific approach. The technology enables the production of low carbon precast materials, including tiles and masonry blocks. These products meet or exceed the constructive properties of widely used products including cement blocks and ceramic tiles. Criaterra products do not contain any synthetic binder or cement.
