CarbonCure and Central Concrete expand partnership
Published by Jonathan Rowland,
CarbonCure Technology and Central Concrete Supply Co. Inc., a business unit of U.S. Concrete Inc., have expanded their partnership, enabling construction companies across the west San Francisco Bay area to access concrete made with recycled CO2 by Autumn 2018.
CarbonCure’s technology introduces recycled CO2 into concrete during its production. Following testing at the U.S. Concrete National Research Laboratory in San Jose, Central Concrete will now install the technology at its seven concrete plants in the West Bay area.
“Central Concrete has always been a leader in the ready-mixed concrete industry in setting the standard for the development of low-carbon concrete that exceeds the performance of traditional concrete,” said Herb Burton, vice president and general manager, U.S. Concrete West Region. “By adopting the CarbonCure Technology, Central Concrete is again exhibiting its leadership and commitment to reducing the overall carbon footprint without sacrificing performance.”
The San Francisco Bay area is known for its commitment to sustainability. This commitment extends to its local design and construction industry, which welcomed the partnership between CarbonCure and Central Concrete.
“Concrete is an integral component on all of our designs and we are so excited to hear that Central Concrete has adopted the innovative CarbonCure Technology locally,” said Susan McComb, Principal at BAR Architects.
