CarbonCure Technologies

Carbon capture and storage company founded in 2007 and based in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada. CarbonCure Technologies Inc. provides carbon dioxide sequestering technology to concrete plants in a system for recycling carbon dioxide waste from industrial emitters and incorporating it into concrete products.

CarbonCure Technologies Inc. (formerly Carbon Sense Solutions Inc.) is a carbon capture and storage company that is headquartered in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada and was founded in 2007 by Robert Niven. CarbonCure technology converts carbon dioxide (CO2) waste to a limestone-like material. The company's CO2 sequestration technology was among the Top 10 Building Products of 2013 by BuildingGreen.com.

Concrete is a very abundant man-made material in the world and is responsible for up to 7% of the world's carbon dioxide CO2 emissions. With CarbonCure's technology, waste CO2 is consumed as it is used to cure concrete where it is permanently locked away. CarbonCure claims their system is expected to help companies reduce energy and cement consumption, and produce products with less defects.

CarbonCure manufactures a bolt-on technology that introduces recycled CO2 into fresh concrete. Concrete producers benefit from improved operations, while offering designers and developers the ability to reduce the carbon footprint of their building projects.
