Louisville-KY & Murfreesboro-TN, Kentucky’s largest masonry producer, Lee Brick and Block and their subsidiary Southland Brick and Block, have partnered with CarbonCure Technologies to be the first in their market to offer masonry made with recycled CO2 in Tennessee and Kentucky. As first to market, Lee will be accelerating the green building market in their areas by giving local architects, engineers, and building owners alternatives to build greener on their construction projects.

CarbonCure's technology offers concrete producers an opportunity to recycle waste carbon dioxide (CO2) into concrete to increase its environmental, material, and economic performance. The CO2 is permanently converted into a solid mineral within the concrete to provide a quality masonry product without compromising aesthetic, quality, or price.

How does CarbonCure's chemistry work? 

“Our communities are moving towards building for the future,” says Carol Lee, CEO of Lee Masonry. “Lee Masonry believes that we can support and accelerate the green infrastructure market momentum by supplying greener masonry with the addition of CarbonCure’s technology to our product offering ultimately to help enable a sustainable future.”

What would a CarbonCure installation look like?

According to a study conducted by the US Green Building Council, the green building industry is estimated to contribute $305 billion to the US Domestic GDP from 2015-2018. In a city level study by CBRE, Louisville in particular, has seen a 7% increase in green building adoption between 2015 and 2016. CarbonCure’s technology can help specifiers obtain credits for green buildings standards such as LEED (Leadership in Environment and Energy Design).
