San Francisco Bay Aggregates is designing & building the first commercial facility to use Blue Planet Systems' patented carbon mineralization technology.
San Francisco Bay Aggregates is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Blue Planet Systems. Our Pittsburg, CA plant will utilize CO2 and waste concrete as feedstocks to produce two products; synthetic limestone aggregate, and up-cycled concrete aggregate.
These recycled, carbon-negative building materials are in high demand as municipalities and companies move to reduce embodied carbon in construction projects.
SF Bay Aggregates will be the global research and development hub for Blue Planet Systems, as our patented geomimetic technology is rolled out to different sectors worldwide.
To achieve our mission of mineralizing 1 billion tonnes of CO2 we will need to develop Blue Planet plants across the globe. The primary developers of these plants will have license to Blue Planet's technology – but it will also need an ecosystem of stakeholders to realize the carbon mitigation potential of our technology.
We are interested in hearing from all key stakeholders shown below. Email us at: email@example.com
Blue Planet's mission is to mineralize a billion tonnes of CO2 in the built environment.
In order to do that we need CO2 but what makes Blue Planet different is that we can use CO2 at any concentration.
Whether it be dilute flue gas from heavy industries or the power sector, CO2 rich streams from chemical processing or DAC companies with a supply of pure CO2 Blue Planet technology can capture and permanently store your emissions.
EPCs & Equipment Providers
The success of Blue Planet will be built on strong partnerships at every stage of a project.
The design and construction of a plant is no different so we are keen to work with EPCs to deliver facilities around the world that can start capturing and storing CO2 as fast as possible.
Carbon negative concrete is a paradigm shifting development. For years the emphasis has been on reducing concrete but with a carbon negative concrete the more you use the lower the embodied carbon of a project.
We want to work with architects, designers and structural engineers to rethink the use of concrete in the built environment and enable buildings to serve the extra function of storing CO2 and protecting future generations from climate change as well as the climate outside.
Capturing a lot of CO2 means producing a lot of rock and while the aggregate market is the only one that comes close to matching the mass of CO2 emissions there will be a need to move that aggregate from the Blue Planet plant to market.
We are especially interested in transportation solutions with lower carbon intensity such as barge and rail that are already operating in industrialized areas or areas, like ports, where CO2 emitters cluster.
Despite Blue Planet's technological expertise we know we cannot go it alone. As plants develop and feedstocks and products change there will be need for technologies in which Blue Planet is not an expert.
If you believe you have a technology that would benefit the Blue Planet process please feel free to get in touch.
Offtakers & Suppliers
Blue Planet's carbon negative aggregate cannot make carbon negative concrete without concrete companies, both ready mix and precast, using the product.
We want to work with concrete companies to offer a product which completely flips the script on those saying concrete will always be bad for the climate.
Returned concrete is also an attractive Geomass for the Blue Planet process enabling us to completely solve the problem of returned concrete's disposal.
