CarbonCure’s Carbon Removal Technologies
CarbonCure permanently locks captured carbon dioxide in concrete — for millennia. Upon injection, the CO₂ immediately turns into rock. Even if this concrete is demolished, mineralized CO₂ will never leak or return to the atmosphere.
Our award-winning technologies are exponentially scaling, installed in hundreds of concrete plants and doubling CO₂ savings year after year across thousands of construction projects around the world.
CarbonCure tracks CO₂ at a granular level, from the point of capture through to mineralization. Our carbon removal buyers can trace the precise deployment date and location of each CO₂ molecule they paid to remove.
How it Works
CarbonCure injects captured CO₂ into concrete during mixing where it chemically converts into a calcium carbonate mineral, remaining embedded within the concrete for millenia.
This 400 nm dimension image shows the nano-calcium carbonate particles that result from mineralization, immediately forming upon injection.
“It’s near impossible to find credits in the market with this level of permanence and verifiability at the quantities CarbonCure has available right now.”
“CarbonCure’s solution is compelling because it's permanent, relatively low cost, and could scale to the size of the global concrete market, sequestering more than 0.5 gigatons of CO₂ annually.”
“CarbonCure’s solution for the concrete industry exemplifies XPRIZE’s ideal innovation — it is effective, commercially viable and scalable — and it can make a real difference to climate change today.”
