Carbon Reduction

Chaney is committed to reducing the carbon footprint of our concrete by using CarbonCure technology and cement substitutes such as fly ash and slag.

CarbonCure retrofits concrete plants with a technology that introduces CO2 into the concrete mix during mixing. When introduced, the CO2 becomes chemically converted into a solid mineral—meaning that the CO2 is permanently trapped within the concrete. The in-situ CO2 mineralization improves the compressive strength of concrete, allowing concrete producers to optimize mix designs and reduce cementitious content.

Fly-ash is a by-product of the combustion of coal, while slag is an industrial by-product of an iron blast furnace. Both products obtain cementitious characteristics, serving as a more sustainable alternative to traditional cement.
