CarbonCure has built a carbon removal technology that adds CO2 into concrete production to improve concrete performance and permanently embed CO2 emissions.
In a world surrounded by concrete, some people—most notably, the CarbonCure team—see opportunity. They’ve transformed that potential into practical technology. It has already been recognized as one of the most scalable carbon dioxide (CO2) technologies, putting CarbonCure on the Top 100 Global Cleantech companies’ list for the past 5 years and naming them North America’s Cleantech Company of the Year in 2020.
Working out of their home base in Nova Scotia, the CarbonCure team tapped into the NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE to bring their technology to the competition and, in doing so, took it to the next level. The team’s idea, in theory, is simple: embed CO2 in concrete— to improve its performance and make it stronger. Applying it to the real world, however, is where the work truly comes in.
The solution: CarbonCure created a quick and simple retrofit design that can easily be added to existing concrete facilities. Their technology has no upfront licensing fees, and the supply chain, along with regulatory integration, is seamless. This translates into compelling profitability and with the benefit of reduced greenhouse gas for the customer. It’s no wonder they’re already working with prominent partners like Trio Ready Mix and Thomas Concrete USA!
