Concrete Offering the Same Performance with a Smaller Carbon Footprint

Indispensable for most construction projects, concrete nonetheless has a high carbon footprint. 50 percent of the limestone fed into a concrete kiln is typically released as carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

Carbon removal technologies work by injecting captured (recycled) CO2 into concrete during mixing. Once injected, the CO2 mineralizes and becomes calcium carbonate, which is permanently trapped in the concrete. This mineralization process improves the compressive strength of the concrete, which enables concrete producers to optimize their mix designs while delivering the required strength. The end result is the same reliable concrete, with a reduced carbon footprint.

We have teamed up with various experts in cement carbonation curing to complement their innovative carbon dioxide removal technologies with our market-leading CO2 supply and control equipment for enhanced curing results. Our liquid carbon dioxide supply and control solutions are tailored specifically to the concrete curing processes developed by companies such as CarbonCure and Carboclave. Our Carboclave alliance focuses on the enhanced manufacturing of prefab cement products, whereas our CarbonCure engagement spans precast, ready-mix and masonry products.
