Ernest Maier is leading the charge to bring sustainable innovations to the forefront of the concrete industry. Ernest Maier and its Bay Ready Mix Division is the world’s first concrete made with CarbonCure’s CO2 recycling technology. The technology recycles CO2 from the smokestacks of industrial emitters into the concrete products, where it becomes chemically converted into a mineral and permanently captured within the concrete.
The CarbonCure technology was installed in Ernest Maier’s Bladensburg, MD concrete masonry production plant in August 2014. Since then, Ernest Maier has supplied multiple building developments with concrete masonry units made with recycled CO2, including, most notably, the US$800 million MGM National Harbour Resort.
In 2015 Ernest Maier acquired Bay Ready Mix, marking the company’s first foray into ready mixed concrete. According to Brendan Quinn, the company’s CEO, the decision to partner once again with CarbonCure was easy.
CarbonCure announced the launch of its ready mixed application, in partnership with Vulcan Materials, at the start of November.
