Climate tech startups team up to decarbonize Arizona concrete plant

Harri Weber of TechCrunch reports on an effort to decarbonize concrete making in Arizona.

The C3 Take
  • Block-Lite, a Flagstaff-based concrete company, is teaming up with Aircapture and CarbonBuilt to decarbonize its operations.
  • Aircapture will sequester atmospheric carbon emissions while CarbonBuilt will retrofit Block-Lite’s facilities so the company can use Aircapture’s CO2 to make new concrete.
  • Concrete production is responsible for some 7% of global industrial emissions.

“Aside from installing solar arrays onto its facility, Block-Lite produces masonry products the traditional way today, emitting a ton of carbon dioxide via the curing process. Through the award, however, Block-Lite told TechCrunch that it will eventually start selling ‘ultra-low carbon blocks to customers in Flagstaff and surrounding areas.'”
