CarbonCure Technologies creates, develops, and licenses solutions that consume waste CO2 to make better concrete.

About CarbonCure Technologies

CarbonCure Technologies is on a mission to make concrete a climate solution, reducing embodied carbon emissions in the built environment and transforming concrete plants into a worldwide network of carbon removal factories.

CarbonCure is scaling an integrated decarbonization platform, with hundreds of systems deployed across the global concrete industry, offering concrete producers a suite of hardware, software and services to reduce the carbon footprint of their concrete products, reduce their production costs and meet the surging demand for green building materials without compromising performance. CarbonCure injects captured CO₂ across the concrete manufacturing process, with commercialized solutions for ready mix concrete, precast concrete and reclaimed water. Upon injection, the CO₂ immediately mineralizes, becoming permanently embedded in the concrete and reducing the amount of cement needed.

Carbon XPRIZE Grand Prize winner, Cleantech 100 Hall of Fame Company and a category leader in low carbon concrete technologies and carbon removal, CarbonCure delivers a true win-win, with climate benefits for the world and economic benefits for concrete producers in one of the world's hardest-to-decarbonize industries. Investors include Amazon, Breakthrough Energy Ventures, Microsoft, Mitsubishi Corporation, Carbon Direct, Samsung and Blue Earth Capital.
