Carbonated aggregate in Carbon Buster block wins award

Carbon8 Aggregates's carbon negative aggregate, which is used in the Carbon Buster building block from Lignacite, has won the 2013 National Recycling Awards for Best Recycled Product.

Masonry products manufacturer, Lignacite, first launched this carbon-negative building block in May 2013.

This new building block from Lignacite is a world first and a British innovation, which has been developed by the company in partnership with Carbon8 Aggregates, using accelerated carbonation technology.

The Carbon Buster incorporates more than 50% recycled aggregates and combines this with Carbon8’s carbonated aggregates derived from by-products from waste-to-energy plants.
The result is a high-performing masonry product, and the first ever building block which has captured more carbon dioxide than is emitted during its manufacture (minus14kg of CO2 per tonne).

“We are delighted that this new carbonated aggregate that we use as a key ingredient in the Carbon Buster block has been recognised as the revolutionary innovation that it is. This aggregate is key to creating structures that will help meet the Government’s zero-carbon buildings target,” said Lignacite’s chief executive, Giles de Lotbiniere.
