Mineral Carbonation International
Mineral Carbonation International (MCi) is an Australian clean technology company transforming CO2 emissions into valuable materials that provide profitable decarbonisation pathways for the mining, manufacturing and energy sectors.
MCi is headquartered in Canberra, Australia with its R&D operations and its flagship global reference pilot plant
located in Newcastle (New South Wales).
MCi uses carbon engineering processes to transform captured CO2 emissions from most industrial sources into solid materials that can be used to manufacture a range of low carbon building and construction products. We use CO2 as a resource and create profitable pathways for many industries to reduce their emissions. This is carbon utilisation (CCU).
Our technology provides a novel decarbonisation solution for industry that is not reliant
upon carbon pricing, offsets or subsidies.
The breakthrough provided with MCi's carbon platform is twofold. It has a very low process and energy cost, and secondly it is adaptable and scalable to integrate into many industrial scenarios such as mineral processing, steel, cement, hydrogen, gas and chemical production.
In 2020, following a successful 7-year period of research funded by Australian Governments and industry partners, we began our commercialisation process. Our expertise and solid techno-economic models allow us now to work with a range of national and international customers and partners as we scale our technology.
We lock away CO2 safely and permanently.
