Seratech is a private limited company, formed by staff and researchers based at Imperial College London. It was incorporated on 7 July 2021 to commercialise research arising from its co-founders Sam Draper and Barney Shanks in the field of CO2 capture and construction material innovation. The technology has been in development since late 2020.
In August 2021, the team was accepted into the Greenhouse, a climate-tech accelerator founded by The Centre for Climate Change Innovation (CCCI) and The Royal Institution.
In December 2021 and January 2022, the team won two grants totalling £212k to hire three further researchers to assist in the development of the process and products.
The patent application for the core technology was filed with the UK and European patent offices in January 2022.
Seratech is featured as a case study in The Green Construction Board’s “Low Carbon Concrete Routemap” and listed as a technology with the highest potential impact to reduce the sector’s carbon emissions.
