  • Carbon dioxide utilization in concrete

    CarbonCure Technologies injects CO2 into concrete to sequester the carbon and improve the concrete’s performance. The retro-fit technology bolts on to existing concrete plants, and allows concrete producers to sequester carbon dioxide emissions directly into concrete, while also making the concrete stronger, and less expensive to manufacture. CarbonCure has already started to commercially deploy the […]

  • Use of Carbon Dioxide in Making Carbonate-Bond Precast Concrete Products

    Carbonation in the cement of concrete products is readily available. McGill’s process builds on that process and uses CO2 to produce an artificial aggregate to be used in the concrete. Because of the unique properties of carbonated concrete, the end product is stronger and more durable than traditional concrete products. This process can be deployed […]
