Mineral Carbonation International (MCi) is an Australian based startup focussed on developing and commercialising technologies for large scale CO2 storage through mineral carbonation – speeding up the Earth’s own process for carbon storage.

The MCi process aims to transform CO2 into carbonates for use in future new building products like bricks, pavers & plasterboard replacements that are non fired products.

The company is a joint venture between Canberra based GreenMag Group, Orica Limited (ASX:ORI) and Newcastle Innovation (commercialisation company of the University of Newcastle).

MCi’s major project is the design and build of a world first mineral carbonation pilot plant designed to scale up and test their technologies and to determine the cost of large scale implementations in New South Wales, Australia and across the world.

See the TEDx talk on “What to do with CO2″ by co-founder and CEO Marcus St.John Dawe.
