Company Description

Architects, structural engineers, owners, and developers are urgently seeking proven ways to reduce the embodied carbon of their building projects. Recognizing concrete as a solution, CarbonCure Technologies, a fast-growing, clean tech company, has developed a carbon dioxide utilization technology, widely used by concrete producers to reduce their environmental impact and production costs. The technology injects captured CO into concrete during mixing, where it is mineralized and permanently removed from the atmosphere. Available from hundreds of concrete plants, CarbonCure-based mixes are transforming the built environment and have permanently saved more than 100,000 tons of carbon emissions from the atmosphere. 

 

CarbonCure was named the Cleantech Group Global 100’s 2020 North American Company of the Year and winner of the global NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE competition. CarbonCure’s investors include Amazon, Breakthrough Energy Ventures, Microsoft, Shopify, Mitsubishi Corporation, and Carbon Direct.

 

The company's core values are innovation, sustainability, trust, high performance, collaboration, and straight talk.
