BURNCO installs CarbonCure technology

Published by

Alberta concrete producer BURNCO Rock Products has installed CarbonCure’s CO2 recycling technology and will supply the Calgary construction market with low carbon concrete.

The technology was installed at its Shepard, AB, concrete plant in June 2016 and testing was conducted throughout the summer to confirm the technology’s performance. The CarbonCure technology injects CO2 sourced from the smokestacks of industrial emitters into concrete, where the CO2 becomes chemically converted into a mineral and permanently captured within the concrete. The process helps to improve concrete’s compressive strength, which enables concrete producers to realise operational efficiencies that further reduce their products’ carbon footprint.

Albertans are becoming increasingly concerned with finding solutions to mitigate carbon emissions,” says Norm Kuntz, Calgary District Manager at BURNCO. “We are proud to contribute towards a solution to carbon, while providing Albertans with the highest quality concrete.”
