Argos delivers America's first ready mixed concrete made with recycled carbon dioxide
CarbonCure's CEO & Founder Rob Niven Participates in the 1st Bloomberg Sustainability Summit
Thanks to a newly formed agreement between Argos of Atlanta, Georgia, and CarbonCure Technologies of Nova Scotia, Canada, Argos was first in the United States to pour concrete manufactured using recycled carbon dioxide.
Argos, a multinational cement and concrete manufacturer headquartered in Colombia, produced the concrete mix with CarbonCure’s carbon dioxide recycling technology at its Cumming, Georgia ready mixed concrete plant in early January. The leading manufacturer has been incorporating the CarbonCure technology into certain concrete mixes for several weeks and continues to undertake extensive industrial scale testing at its technical center.
CarbonCure’s CEO Rob Niven participated in the first Bloomberg sustainable business summit on Nov. 3rd at Bloomberg’s Global Headquarters in Manhattan. The first day of the summit focused on the future of the circular economy and featured panels on new and emerging businesses at the forefront of sustainable business practices. Rob participated in a panel discussion representing CarbonCure as one of three case studies discussing their roles in creating a sustainable economy. Other panelists included David Lear, Executive Director for Corporate Sustainability of Dell, and Eben Bayer, Founder and CEO of Ecovative, a biomaterials company that uses mushroom material to create environmentally friendly packaging and wood product alternatives.
