Néolithe has developed a new way of processing non-recyclable, non-inert and non-hazardous waste
6 % of global greenhouse gas emissions are from waste treatment
40 million tonnes of waste are landfilled or incinerated every year
450 million tonnes of aggregates are used every year
A treatment solution
Accelerated Fossilization of waste
Néolithe develops technologies for the sustainable treatment of final waste using Accelerated Fossilization. This process, which sequesters more carbon than it emits, transforms non-recyclable, non-inert and non-hazardous waste into aggregate for use in non-structural concrete or gravel-bitumen.
This new approach, an alternative to landfill and incineration, enables the company to reduce the carbon footprint of waste management by around 200%.
New building material
Anthropocite®, carbon sinks for the construction industry
Aggregates produced by Accelerated Waste Fossilization can replace natural aggregates from quarries for use in non-structural concrete, without any technical or environmental risk.
They act as carbon sinks, preventing the degradation of biogenic materials contained in construction waste. Anthropocite® has a negative carbon footprint, meaning that for every tonne of aggregate produced, 337 kg of CO2 equivalent is stored within the aggregate. The manufacture and use of these aggregates by the construction industry therefore has a positive effect on the environment.
A visible commitment
Our main objective is to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of waste processing. Convinced that industry, through its capacity to act, is the best vector to have a sustainable and large-scale impact, Néolithe has invented Accelerated Fossilization, a process at the crossroads of ecology and industry.
By using its industrial resources to respond to urgent environmental needs, Néolithe has positioned itself as a pioneer in the solutions industry.
