Pan-United is to introduce CarbonCure’s breakthrough technology, providing greener and stronger concrete to the ready mix concrete mix industry in Singapore and the surrounding region.
CarbonCure technology chemically converts carbon dioxide captured from industrial emitters into a nano-material that becomes permanently embedded within concrete. This process improves the compressive strength of concrete, as well as enabling concrete producers to realise manufacturing efficiencies while also reducing the concrete’s carbon footprint. This has the potential to save more than 4000 tpy of CO2 at each Pan-United concrete plant.
“Singapore is a vital gateway to CarbonCure’s entry into Asia to further global efforts to mitigate harmful carbon emissions from the built environment,” said Robert Niven, Founder and CEO of CarbonCure. “We are delighted and convinced that we have a like-minded and strong partner in Pan-United, which is the industry leader in Southeast Asia for advancing green concrete initiatives. Pan-United’s technology capabilities in the concrete and logistics space are second to none in this region.”
“Pan-United is excited to expand our portfolio of sustainable initiatives with the addition of CarbonCure’s breakthrough technology,” said Ken Loh, Executive Director of Pan-Untied. “Pan-United intends to expand the use of the CarbonCure Technology by introducing it to other ready mix concrete producers in Singapore and the region. While reducing the overall carbon footprint, we believe this special process has multiple benefits to enable sustainability gains not only for concrete producers and the construction industry, but also for developers in their building projects.”
Pan-United is Singapore’s largest concrete and cement company, with operations across Malaysia, Indonesia, and Vietnam.
CarbonCure is a world leader in carbon dioxide utilisation technologies for the concrete industry.
