Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

NRMCA member Vulcan Materials Company has announced what it calls the industry's first ready mixed concrete license with CarbonCure, a company whose technology uses carbon dioxide gas captured from the smokestacks of industrial emitters to improve the compressive strength of ready mixed concrete. The installation of the CarbonCure technology in Vulcan’s ready mixed concrete facility in Springfield, VA, means that Washington, DC, will be the world’s first metropolitan market with access to this sustainable concrete, according to a Vulcan media release.
"We at Vulcan are proud of our commitment to sustainability," stated Diggs Bishop, vice president/general manager for Vulcan's Mideast Division. "The CarbonCure technology, which improves both sustainability and strength, is the future of the concrete industry. We’re excited to announce that the future starts here, in Washington, D.C."
CarbonCure was founded in 2007. It states that its technology chemically repurposes waste carbon dioxide during the concrete manufacturing process. The company also provides reporting tools such as Environmental and Health Product Declarations for products made with CarbonCure.
