GreenJams : Revolutionizing the Construction Industry with Carbon-Negative Materials

How GreenJams is Revolutionizing the Construction Industry with Carbon-Negative Materials – The construction industry is one of the major contributors to global carbon emissions, accounting for about 45% of the total. The conventional building materials, such as cement, steel, and bricks, are not only energy-intensive and polluting, but also deplete natural resources and generate waste. Moreover, the demand for these materials is expected to rise as the world’s population and urbanization increase.

However, there is a way to build better buildings without compromising the environment or the quality. GreenJams, an award-winning startup backed by the Ministry of Housing & Urban Affairs, has developed a patented innovation called Agrocrete®, the world’s first verified carbon-negative building material.

What is Agrocrete® and how does it work?

Agrocrete® is a unique composite material that combines processed crop residues, such as rice straw, bagasse, cotton stalks, etc., with a revolutionary mineral binder that is derived from the by-products of steel and power industries. The result is a strong, durable, and lightweight material that can be used to make masonry units, such as blocks, bricks, and panels.

Agrocrete® is carbon-negative because it sequesters more carbon dioxide than it emits during its production and use. According to a life cycle assessment study, Agrocrete® captures 2.5 kg of CO2 per kg of material, while preventing another 1.5 kg of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere. This means that for every square foot of Agrocrete® used, 3.5 kg of CO2 is removed from the environment.

What are the benefits of using Agrocrete®?

Agrocrete® offers multiple benefits for the construction industry, the environment, and the society. Some of the advantages of using Agrocrete® are:

  • Cost-effective: Agrocrete® reduces the construction cost by 50% compared to clay bricks and by 41% compared to AAC blocks. This is because Agrocrete® requires less mortar, less plaster, less transportation, and less labor. Agrocrete® also saves energy costs by providing 350% higher thermal insulation than clay bricks which reduces the need for heating and cooling systems.
  • High-performance: Agrocrete® has excellent mechanical and physical properties, such as compressive strength, fire resistance, water absorption, and sound insulation. Agrocrete® also has a smooth and uniform finish, which eliminates the need for chiseling or hammering. Agrocrete® can be easily cut, drilled, nailed, and painted, making it mason-friendly and versatile.
  • Sustainable: Agrocrete® is made from renewable and abundant agricultural waste, which otherwise would be burned or landfilled, causing air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Agrocrete® also uses industrial by-products, which reduces the demand for virgin materials and minimizes waste generation. Agrocrete® is biodegradable and recyclable, making it a circular and eco-friendly material.
  • Socially impactful: Agrocrete® creates a positive impact on the rural communities by providing them with a source of income and employment. GreenJams sources the crop residues from the farmers at a fair price, creating a win-win situation for both parties. GreenJams also trains and employs local women and youth in the production and installation of Agrocrete®, empowering them with skills and opportunities.
