What we do
Why that is important
How it works
Our admix materials are seamlessly integrated with existing production processes and do not require significant capital investments. Moreover, they are complementary with many other concrete decarbonization approaches, allowing to jointly maximize positive climate impact.
ecoLocked Materials decarbonize the construction sector in three ways:
We permanently store sequestered CO2 in the built environment, compensating hard-to-abate emissions from cement production
Lifetime emission reduction
Our admixes enhance buildings’ energy efficiency and have the potential to accelerate lifetime carbon sequestration
Direct emission reduction
Our recipes reduce the need for CO2-intensive ingredients like cement clinker
Our solution for climate-positive concrete
ecoLocked Materials are biocarbon-based concrete admix materials designed to reduce embodied CO2 and turn buildings into stable carbon sinks.
Their integration is simple and happens directly at the concrete plant or at the site of a construction project: Conventional inputs like cement are partially substituted with ecoLocked Materials based on our customized recipes, which minimize CO2 and maximize functional performance according to the specific requirements of a project.
We are building a portfolio of products to enable climate-friendly concrete across multiple applications. In 2023, we will run the first commercial pilots in locations across Europe. Stay tuned for further information – and reach out if you want to decarbonize concrete together!

Want to help change the construction sector's climate trajectory?
We'd love to hear from you!
Providing scalable end applications for biochar insetting in the construction industry with maximum impact and performance.
ecoLocked was formed from the strong desire in each of us to contribute to climate action – and to do it fast. Knowing that the pace of industrial emission reduction is insufficient, we quickly realized that the 1.5° target can only be reached with the additional fast scale-up of carbon removal technologies.
And we are convinced that biocarbon production is the most powerful of them all. It can be deployed at scale today and
- is incredibly effective and cost-efficient thanks to the use of residue inputs, low operating costs, and the recycling of excess pyrolysis gas
- returns a material with tremendous potential in a range of industries, including agriculture, water filtration, and last but not least: construction
In September 2021, we started building ecoLocked with the aim to provide a scalable solution for the decarbonization of the built environment and at the same time enable carbon removal at scale. We have not slowed down since and are proud to present our diverse team of multidisciplinary experts and climate enthusiasts!
