University features green CMU

Permacon licensed the CarbonCure Technology to manufacture the concrete masonry units (CMUs) in the Bergeron Centre using post-industrial CO₂ emissions captured from a Courtright, Ontario-based manufacturing plant. The amount of CO₂ sequestered in the CMUs in this project is equivalent to the amount absorbed by 50 full-grown trees or 1 acre of forest throughout a year!
