The initiative named CarbonCure as an innovative carbon dioxide removal solution for the French construction industry
Halifax, NS — January 14, 2021: CarbonCure Technologies, a Canadian clean tech company that develops carbon dioxide removal (CDR) solutions for the concrete industry, was recognized as one of six winners of Sekoya’s second call for low-carbon solutions for the French construction industry.
“CarbonCure is proud to be awarded a spot on Sekoya’s list of low-carbon solutions — a first for a Canadian company. This award is yet another endorsement of CarbonCure as a leading CDR solution for the construction industry,” said Rob Niven, CEO and Founder of CarbonCure.
“France is an important market for CarbonCure and will play an integral role in helping us achieve our goal of 500 megatonnes of CO₂ reductions annually—contributing to the eventual decarbonization of the construction industry,” said Niven.
