Construction & Materials
Eco2 Magnesia is one of our most innovative collaborations, an award-winning project focused on creating the technology and infrastructure to decontaminate and transform waste mine tailings to produce the world’s first green magnesium oxide.
ECO2 Magnesia is dedicated to becoming a global leader in reducing Co2 emissions and minimizing its environmental footprint. The full ECO2 production chain — from the laboratory to the market — is based on the concept of offering a «second life» to currently discarded and unused waste materials. The product, MgO, is one of the purest in the world and is made using a patented Co2 closed loop process that leads to the lowest Co2 emissions footprint in the world.
The full-scale plant in Quebec, Canada, will create 100 high-tech jobs, revalorize more than 480,000 tons of mine tailings and reduce the emission of 160,000 tons per year of CO2.
