Seratech brings together scientists, engineers, and business leaders to redesign the composition of cement in concrete, making the manufacturing of cement 100% carbon neutral giving it fantastic implications in sustainable construction materials and consumer products.

Seratech was established by staff and researchers based at Imperial College London in July 2021 with the technology being 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 and The Royal Institution, and since have been given two grants to hire three further researchers to assist the development of the process and products.
