Meet the Company Taking on Concrete’s Carbon Footprint

Peter Keating writes in Inc. about a company that is decarbonizing concrete.

The C3 Take
  • Concrete is carbon-intensive to make and is used in nearly every construction project.
  • Solidia Technologies is looking to decarbonize cement making with a novel process that requires less energy and limestone to produce.
  • Importantly, Solidia’s cement is infused with CO2 which prevents carbon from being released in the cement making process.
  • Solidia’s technology has reduced the carbon footprint of cement making by 60%.

“During manufacturing, a batch of Solidia concrete absorbs CO2 so voraciously that if you listen to the gas entering the curing chamber, you’ll hear a hissing noise. ‘The mix literally inhales carbon dioxide, like a human would inhale air,’ says Riman.”
