CalStar Products develops and manufactures low cost sustainable masonry products that allow building owners and architects to dramatically reduce the embodied energy and carbon footprint of their building projects. CalStar’s revolutionary manufacturing process incorporates significant recycled content as the binder, and eliminates kiln firing or use of Portland cement. This low energy and high-recycled content manufacturing process reduces product costs, which contributes positively to project budgets, all without compromising building performance.
CalStar’s bricks, pavers, structural units, architectural veneer and cast stone products offer the beauty and quality traditionally associated with masonry products, but with a significantly reduced environmental footprint. CalStar’s innovative production process incorporates up to 37% recycled content, emits 84% less CO2 and uses 50%-81% less energy than clay and concrete materials. The environmental savings are published in CalStar’s Environmental Product Declaration for brick.
Founded in Silicon Valley and headquartered in North Carolina, CalStar’s mission encompasses national priorities of supporting energy independence, mitigating climate change, preserving natural resources, recycling industrial by-products, and creating green jobs. The products are fully competitive with traditional masonry products in performance and price and contribute to LEED® points on applicable projects.
