Atlas CMU block with CarbonCure
Atlas CMU block with CarbonCure significantly improves the carbon sequestration process of concrete curing by taking CO2 supplied from local industrial sources and injecting it directly into concrete masonry units (CMUs) during production using a specially designed mold. Injecting CO2 into CMUs during manufacture also improves their strength, reduces the amount of portland cement required, and speeds curing.
