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.
