CarbonMeta Technologies Wins Sole Source Contract with Saudi Investment Recycling Company (SIRC)

CarbonMeta and SIRC to launch cement-less concrete pilot project in March 2024

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and Woodinville, WA, USA, Feb. 20, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CarbonMeta Technologies Inc. (OTC PINK:COWI, “CarbonMeta”) announced today that it has won an 850,000 SAR (220,000 USD) sole source contract with Saudi Investment Recycling Company (SIRC) to develop and commercialize a carbon-negative concrete made from industrial, construction demolition waste and mining waste, and thereby provide sustainable, eco-friendly products for strategic construction projects in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA).

SIRC, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF) of Saudi Arabia plans to attract over $13 billion in foreign direct investment and contribute over $30 billion to Saudi GDP by 2035, by investing in key technologies that can reduce CO2 emissions, recycle solid waste, and promote a circular economy in Saudi Arabia.

“This joint pilot project with SIRC is the first step for commercializing the production of carbon-negative pavers, street furniture, and bricks in Saudi Arabia, which will be targeted towards Saudi current and future mega projects,” said Mohammed Khalil, Vice President of Business Development at CarbonMeta Technologies. “We look forward to completing this pilot project and working further with SIRC toward scaling up the production and sale of carbon-negative concrete products and realizing the goal of a circular, sustainable economy in line with Saudi Vision 2030.”

CarbonMeta will launch its pilot plant in March 2024, and expects to trial carbon-negative bricks, street furniture, and road barriers made from the carbon-negative concrete mix.

CarbonMeta and SIRC signed a Research & Development (R&D) and Commercial Collaboration Agreement in September 2023, and CarbonMeta plans to partner with:

  • key suppliers of construction, industrial, and mining waste materials.
  • a Riyadh-based factory to manufacture bricks from the carbon-negative concrete mix.
  • a concrete furniture manufacturer to produce at least four different street furniture models using the carbon-negative concrete mix.

“This collaboration will help CarbonMeta advance its cement-less concrete technology that will result in products that can also mitigate climate change by capturing carbon dioxide (CO2),” said Lloyd Spencer, President and CEO of CarbonMeta Technologies. “Through this cooperation, SIRC and‎ CarbonMeta Technologies can help advance construction waste recycling technologies and contribute to the development of a circular, sustainable economy.”

In August 2023, CarbonMeta Technologies Limited was registered in Saudi Arabia. Based in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, the company is a wholly owned subsidiary of CarbonMeta Technologies, Inc. in the United States. Mr. Khalil is Vice President of Business Development at CarbonMeta Technologies, Inc. and is also the Managing Director of CarbonMeta Technologies Limited.
