Upcycling sugarcane by-products
SugarcreteTM is an interlocking shaped construction block made from by-products that provides a sustainable, ultra-low carbon construction alternative to existing high carbon materials.
Developed in partnership with Grimshaw Architects, the material was created by mixing the sugarcane fibres left over after sugar sap extraction, known as bagasse, with bespoke sand-mineral binders is a material which has the potential to be used and re-used in new or existing structures, replacing both brick and concrete.
