Solidia Technologies has announced that it will be collaborating with CDS Group to develop equipment designed to cure concrete with CO2 instead of water for precast applications. This will include technological upgrades for existing curing chambers and the design and manufacture of new curing chambers suited to Solidia’s patented CO2-curing process.
CDS Group, a leading curing and drying specialist, markets its products around the world so it is au fait with regional regulations and can provide systems that have technical and regulatory approval.
Solidia’s concrete curing technology, which utilises Solidia Cement™, is said to lower CO2 emissions during the cement production process and capture CO2 in precast concrete manufacturing. According to the US-based start-up, in addition to environmental benefits, the technology can cut costs as a result of factors such as faster curing times, lower energy and raw material consumption and less waste generation.
“Solidia’s technology will extend our commitment to delivering sustainable innovations to the global building materials market,” explained Andrew J. Hall, President of US operations at UK-based CDS Group.
“We are thrilled that CDS joins the global industry leaders who are collaborating with us to deliver turnkey solutions to manufacturers that deliver both added value and cost savings while reducing their carbon footprint,” said Tom Schuler, Solidia President and CEO. “Our primary R&D focus is to make it easy and profitable for manufacturers to adopt our technology. Modifying new or existing chambers will minimise capital investment for our customers.”
