Did you know that concrete is the most abundant man-made material in the world?
The production of cement, the critical ingredient that gives concrete its strength, is responsible for up to 7% of the world’s total CO₂ emissions.
Concrete has a smaller CO₂ impact per volume than other materials, but its abundance means that it creates more CO₂ overall than any other material.
There’s a reason why concrete is so abundant.
See why designers and developers choose concrete for sustainable, durable construction:
Have your cake and eat it too
Designers can capitalize on the unique qualities of concrete they rely on: strength, versatility, durability, sound-reduction and thermal-insulation - with a reduced carbon footprint.
Carbon footprint reduction of ready mix:
Approx. 25 lbs CO₂ per cubic yard
(sequestered + avoided CO₂)
Carbon footprint reduction of masonry:
Approx. 1 lb CO₂ per 30 standard blocks
It’s as easy as flipping a switch
The use of the CarbonCure Technology has no impact on the fresh or hardened properties of ready mix or concrete masonry, including durability, finishing, workability, pump-ability, temperature, pH or appearance.
Something to get excited about
CarbonCure was recently named a finalist in the NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE Challenge, recognizing its renowned innovative solution to climate change. Featuring the CarbonCure Technology in your next project is a great way to display your commitment to the future of green building.
Contribution to LEED certification
Many of CarbonCure’s producer partners have transparency documents, such as EPDs and HPDs that can help contribute to your project’s LEED certification. The carbon footprint reduction can also be recognized through the LEED certification program.
