Once injected into the concrete mix, the CO₂ reacts with calcium ions from cement to form a nano-sized mineral, Calcium Carbonate, which becomes embedded in the concrete.
This makes the concrete stronger, enabling mix optimization while eliminating the CO₂.

Batching is controlled by a simple interface, the CarbonCure Control Box, which is integrated with the plant’s batching software.
In a ready mix dry batch application, the CO₂ is injected into the hopper; while in a central mix or masonry application, the CO₂ is injected into the central mixer.
CarbonCure’s equipment is retrofitted into concrete plants in just one visit. The CarbonCure Valve Box is connected to the CO₂ tank stored onsite, and automatically injects a precise dosage of CO₂ into the concrete during mixing. The CarbonCure Control Box syncs with the plant’s batching software, so adding CO₂ to a mix is as easy and quick as flipping a switch.
Telemetry gathered from each Control Box syncs with the CarbonCure Command Centre in real-time, enabling CarbonCure staff to maintain the technology’s 99% uptime and administer ongoing support remotely with quick response times. A summary of CarbonCure system usage for producers is available via the myCarbonCure platform.
