CarbonCure Technologies

Description:

CarbonCure Technologies Inc. has developed universal retrofit technologies that utilize waste CO2 in concrete production. Concrete blocks are produced with CO2 that is permanently stored in the building material as solid limestone. Ready mixed concrete can be produced with reduced cement loadings in response to a strength enhancement associated with an optimal dose of CO2. The project aimed to validate the performance of the technologies through industrial demonstrations.
