Alcemy has created a new type of cement and concrete production, and they’ve done it cheaper, with less CO2 and consistently high quality.
Concrete is the backbone of our civilization. Demand is growing to match an increasingly urbanized population. However, concrete is also also responsible for 8% of global CO2 emissions. Companies producing concrete face significant challenges producing consistent and sustainable product, due to varying degrees of manufacturing quality.
With Alcemy’s AI software, production quality can be predictively controlled, increasing the uniformity of cement and concrete. It also simplifies work in the laboratory and control room, and reduces production costs. Alchemy’s work sets the course for a progressive reduction in the CO2 footprint and significantly simplifies the handling of even the most complex mixtures.
Leopold Spenner has spent much of his life working in his family’s fourth-generation cement plant. With an MSc in Industrial Engineering from KIT, research at the German Cement Association and two building material projects at BCG, he’s experienced the industry from all angles.
Dr Rob Meyer holds a MSc & PhD in Machine Learning from TU Berlin. He co-founded and scaled the team that built the dynamic pricing pipeline for FlixBus from scratch in 2 years, suggesting prices for >100,000 tickets a day. His open source projects like pypet make him well known in the Python community.
