The Oil and Gas Climate Initiative (OGCI) is a CEO-led initiative of ten oil and gas companies that collaborate on action to lead the industry response to climate change. OGCI Climate Investments, its billion dollar investment arm, supports the development, deployment and scale up of new technologies that will significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

“We believe that Solidia Technologies’ product and process can provide a step change in lowering the greenhouse gas and water footprint of the cement and concrete industry,” said OGCI Climate Investments CEO Dr. Pratima Rangarajan. “We are committed to helping them commercialize on a global scale to increase the adoption of their carbon recycling technology.”

Solidia’s technologies start with sustainable Solidia Cement™ and cure Solidia Concrete™ with CO2 instead of water, reducing carbon emissions up to 70% and recycling 60-80% of the water used in production. Targeting the estimated US$1 trillion concrete and US$300 billion cement markets, Solidia’s processes offer manufacturers significant cost savings based on faster curing times, lower energy and raw material consumption, reduced waste generation, and reduced labor requirements.

“Bringing a sustainable technology to market is impossible without support from investors like OGCI Climate Investments,” said Solidia CEO and President Tom Schuler. “It’s admirable that leaders in oil and gas have come together to address climate change. Their commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions through funding ground-breaking solutions will speed adoption.”

Solidia’s investors include Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Bright Capital, BASF, BP, Lafarge Holcim, Total Energy Ventures and Bill Joy.
