CarbonCure Technology

Co2 waste mineralization as a new standard for sustainable concrete production

August 2020

The CarbonCure solution uses carbon dioxide from cement plants to provide downstream mix producers with the resources needed to make stronger, greener concrete.

Cement, the main ingredient of concrete, is responsible for approximately 7% of global man-made greenhouse emissions, making it the world's second-largest industrial source of carbon dioxide. To tackle this challenge, CarbonCure Technologies developed and commercialized a scalable technology that utilizes post-industrial carbon dioxide to increase the strength of concrete, allowing for less cement in concrete mixes. Its retrofit technology chemically mineralizes waste carbon dioxide during the concrete production process, making greener and stronger concrete. The CarbonCure Technology is being used at hundreds of concrete plants today to reduce concrete’s carbon footprint (17 kilograms GHGsper cubic metre), create new production cost savings and gain a competitive advantage. CarbonCure’s vision is to make the utilization of carbon dioxide in concrete production the new standard across the globe.

From Canada
Maturity stage Medium and large scale commercialization
Looking For Network, New clients, Visibility, Funding, Partners, Credibility

The environmental benefits

  • Reduces CO2 by an average of 17 kilograms per m³ thanks to a cement reduction of 5% in concrete mixes
  • In a typical high-rise building, savings can reach up to approximately 250,000 pounds/125 tons (120,000 kg) of CO2

The Financial benefits

  • Requires no upfront capital investment
  • ROI within months
  • Since the cement is the most expensive ingredient in concrete, a reduction of 5% in the mix allows for operational efficiencies/ cost savings
