Shaw Brick uses CarbonCure blocks to build schools across Nova Scotia

Since 2017, Shaw Brick used blocks made with sequestered carbon dioxide (CO2) for six schools across the company’s home province of Nova Scotia, supplying nearly 450,000 blocks in total for those projects. As a result, Shaw Brick has reduced the embodied carbon footprint of each of these buildings, saving a combined total of 6,719 kg (14,812 lbs) CO2 emissions from entering the atmosphere.

Shaw Brick has been a supporter of CarbonCure from the beginning for a reason - we believe in the Technology and its ability to reduce carbon emissions of the built environment. We are proud to have been able to supply CarbonCure block to several schools in our home province.
