CarbonCure-Capturing Carbon in Concrete Blocks

The production of portland cement, a key ingredient in concrete, results in approximately 5% of the world’s anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Reducing the amount of this CO2 in concrete products has long been an industry goal, but CarbonCure is the first company to bring to market a viable, mass-produced product that “sequesters” significantly more CO2 from the atmosphere than standard concrete without requiring a radical change in technology.
