Vulcan Materials announced the industry’s first ready mixed license with CarbonCure Technologies. CarbonCure’s technology uses carbon dioxide gas captured from the smokestacks of industrial emitters to improve the compressive strength of ready mixed concrete.
Vulcan will install the CarbonCure technology in its ready mixed concrete facility in Springfield, Va.
“We at Vulcan are proud of our commitment to sustainability,” said Diggs Bishop, VP/general manager, Vulcan Materials, Mideast Division. “The CarbonCure technology, which improves both sustainability and strength, is the future of the concrete industry.”
“CarbonCure is the concrete industry’s gateway to the green design community,” said Rob Niven, founder and CEO of CarbonCure. “The launch of the CarbonCure Ready Mixed Technology enables concrete producers to provide a solution that meets the demands of the design community for sustainable building products.”
