CarbonCure Technologies has announced a collaboration with Airgas, an Air Liquide company, in an effort to adopt CO2 utilisation technologies throughout the US Gulf Coast region.
“CarbonCure is excited to expand its relationship with Airgas,” said Robert Niven, CEO of CarbonCure. “This turn-key CarbonCure and Airgas offering will make it easier than ever for concrete producers to realise new production cost efficiencies, while reducing concrete’s carbon footprint. At the same time, this collaboration allows CarbonCure and Airgas to jointly unlock the growing CO2 utilisation market.”
CarbonCure’s technology injects carbon dioxide (CO2) sourced from the refineries of industrial emitters into concrete, where the CO2 becomes mineralised, thereby enhancing the strength of the concrete. The innovative solution helps concrete producers to lower production costs and make a meaningful contribution toward the global effort to reduce atmospheric CO2 emissions. Airgas offers concrete producers a complete value-added CO2 supply and service solution, supported by its large and reliable Gulf Coast distribution network.
“Airgas focuses on creating value for customers and acting responsibly to help preserve the environment by reducing atmospheric CO2 emissions,” said Scott Koonce Airgas's Vice President of Bulk Gas. “This collaboration between Airgas and CarbonCure will ensure that concrete producers across the Gulf Coast experience exceptional customer service as they adopt these impactful technologies.”
