Collaboration announced to enhance the customer value of adopting CO2 utilization technologies for concrete production in the U.S. Gulf Coast
CarbonCure Technologies Inc. (CarbonCure) has announced a strategic commercial relationship with Airgas, an Air Liquide company, to collaborate and enhance the cement and concrete industry customer experience of adopting carbon dioxide (CO2) utilization technologies throughout the U.S. Gulf Coast region. This initiative builds upon a longstanding relationship of jointly serving some of the industry’s leading ready mix and masonry concrete producers.
The CarbonCure technology injects CO2 into concrete in order to improve the
concrete's strength and reduce manufacturing costs.
“CarbonCure is excited to expand its relationship with Airgas,” says Robert Niven, CEO of CarbonCure. “This turn-key CarbonCure and Airgas offering will make it easier than ever for concrete producers to realize new production cost efficiencies while reducing concrete’s carbon footprint. At the same time, this collaboration allows CarbonCure and Airgas to jointly unlock the growing CO2 utilization market.”
CarbonCure’s technology injects carbon dioxide (CO2) sourced from the refineries of industrial emitters into concrete, where the CO2 becomes mineralized, thereby enhancing the strength of the concrete. The innovative solution helps concrete producers to lower production costs and make a meaningful contribution toward the global effort to reduce atmospheric CO2 emissions. Airgas offers concrete producers a complete value-added CO2 supply and service solution, supported by its large and reliable Gulf Coast distribution network.
“Airgas focuses on creating value for customers and acting responsibly to help preserve the environment by reducing atmospheric CO2 emissions,” says Airgas Vice President of Bulk Gas Scott Koonce. “This collaboration between Airgas and CarbonCure will ensure that concrete producers across the Gulf Coast experience exceptional customer service as they adopt these impactful technologies.”
CarbonCure is the world leader in a breakthrough market known as CO2 utilization, with nearly 100 installations of its technology across North America. The Global CO2 Initiativeestimates that CO2 utilization in the concrete sector alone represents a $400 billion market opportunity.
