Specialist construction products supplier introduces carbon removal technology for concrete



CE Construction Solutions has announced it will be distributing the CarbonCure carbon removal technology for Australia’s concrete producers.

Concrete producers that utilise CarbonCure technology can inject captured CO₂ into concrete during mixing. This allows it to mineralise and permanently remove carbon produced by concrete from the atmosphere.

Mineralised CO₂ can also improve the concrete’s consistency and performance while providing a sustainability advantage.

CE construction solutions general manager Daniel Rowley said the technology enables Australia’s concrete producers to remove 500,000 of CO₂ per year.

“This technology represents an opportunity for the Australian concrete producers to remove upwards of 500,000 tonnes of CO₂ from our industry’s impact annually,” he said.

“By introducing this technology, we are calling on all stakeholders in the Australia building and construction industry to embrace CarbonCure and be a part of the sustainable construction solution.”

CarbonCure is currently used in 300 concrete plants across the globe and is used in projects owned by companies such as Amazon.

Every cubic metre of concrete produced using CarbonCure’s technology removes 17 kilograms of carbon emissions.

CarbonCure VP business development Kaja Salovsky has welcomed their distribution deal with CE Construction Solutions.

“We are thrilled to have CE Construction Solutions join the global network of CarbonCure Authorised Distributors, supporting our vision of CO₂ removal technology becoming a standard for Australian concrete production Salovsky said.

“Focused on delivering innovation to the concrete industry, CE Construction Solutions are well positioned to assist CarbonCure’s mission of reducing CO₂ emissions by 500 megatonnes per year.”
