Aridditive: Transforming the Construction Industry with Concrete 3D Printing Solutions

Aridditive is born with the vision to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, driving innovation and inclusivity in the construction sector

Aridditive is expected to become a spin-off between CIM UPC and Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC). Located in Barcelona,  the new company aims to design, produce and commercialize concrete 3D printers using a patent pending cutting-edge technology for the construction industry. Aridditive will utilize the expertise and research of UPC and CIM UPC to bring a revolutionary solution to the construction market. 


The new Instant Setting Concrete EXtrusion (ISCEX) technology for concrete 3D printing promises to improve the speed, efficiency and sustainability of building precons. The technology allows the creation of low-weight custom structures with precision and efficiency, reducing waste and minimizing the need for manual labor.


This cutting-edge development is expected to have a significant impact on the construction industry, helping to reduce costs and improving the speed of building projects through a real industrialization of the whole process. The creation of Aridditive demonstrates the potential for academic research to drive real-world solutions and bring new innovations to market.


Aridditive will be in the 4YFN fair from February 27th to March 2nd 2023 (in Barcelona) releasing the ISCEX technology. 4YFN is a parallel fair to Mobile World Congress (MWC) that was born to represent the local startup ecosystem to the world and currently already has exhibitors from more than 50 countries and visitors from 145 countries.


The launch of Aridditive has received widespread attention and enthusiasm from the construction industry, with many businesses eager to explore the potential of this new technology. The company’s focus on sustainable and efficient building solutions will help to address the challenges facing the construction industry and support the development of sustainable infrastructure around the world.
