LithiumBank and ZS2 Join Forces for Carbon-Neutral Technology

This month ZS2 Technologies announced a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with LithiumBank to establish both carbon-neutral cement and carbon-neutral lithium extraction.

We’ll be implementing our proprietary Direct Air Capture (DAC) technology at LithiumBank’s Boardwalk Lithium Brine Project. The partnership also includes the extraction of magnesium and calcium from brines at the Boardwalk extraction site to be used in carbon-neutral cement building products, manufactured at our TechCentre in Calgary and includes provisions for rapid scale-up and deployment.

Highlights of the partnership with Lithium Bank include:

  • Implementation of ZS2’s proprietary DAC technology to capture CO2 from Lithium Bank’s Boardwalk operation
  • Lithium Bank will annually supply 25,000 cubic meters of magnesium and calcium-rich brines to ZS2 for carbon-neutral cement production
  • The companies will pioneer the development of magnesium and calcium extraction technologies
  •  Establish the process of carbon-neutral cement production from mineral extraction to CO2 sequestration, to commercialization

New ZS2 Product Coming Online

The manufacturing and R&D team has been busy over the last month commissioning new equipment in the newly-expanded TechCentre. Here’s a sneak peek of Dr. Doug Brown showing off the new gear. Stay tuned to learn what we’ll use it to manufacture next!

ZS2 is Turning 3 Years Old. What an Incredible Journey

We turned 3 this weekend and what an amazing 3 years it has been! We are so proud of our incredibly hard-working TechCrew and all they’ve achieved together these last 3 years. 

Take a look back at some of our big milestones and project highlights from this year… And we’re just getting started!

Overcoming the Skilled Labor Shortage

Did you know that according to a recent survey, 90% of contractors are facing difficulty in finding skilled labor? This is a significant challenge for the construction industry, but prefabricated building solutions can help. 

Our latest blog highlights how changing how we build can reduce on-site construction time by up to 50%, resulting in significant cost savings. In addition, prefab construction can help increase safety on job sites and reduce material waste.

We’ve even included a cheat sheet to help calculate what kind of labor savings builders can expect from switching to TechPanels. 

So, have a read to learn more about how you can overcome the labor shortage, streamline your construction process, and ultimately boost your bottom line.
