  • Selects German net-zero concrete

Heidelberg, Germany — In an effort to champion environmental and climate responsibility, the Nobel Center Project in Stockholm took a significant step by selecting evoZero, the world’s first carbon captured net-zero concrete, for its new building. Developed by Heidelberg Materials, represents a major advancement in sustainable construction, the company said Wednesday.

Set for construction in 2027, the new Nobel Center is poised to become a beacon of environmental stewardship. The decision to utilize evoZero aligns with the center’s commitment to leading the way in eco-friendly building practices. This concrete’s net-zero carbon footprint is achieved through innovative carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology at Heidelberg Materials’ cement plant in Brevik, Norway, underscoring the company’s dedication to green industrial transformation.

The memorandum of understanding between the Nobel Center Project and Heidelberg Materials cements this partnership, showcasing a shared vision for a more sustainable future.

The use of evoZero in such a high-profile project is expected to set a new standard in the construction industry, especially for projects that prioritize environmental impact. It demonstrates the feasibility of integrating cutting-edge technology into traditional sectors like construction to achieve significant environmental benefits.
