On the surface, you might not notice the difference between CarbonCure concrete and regular concrete.
They are fundamentally different.
CarbonCure works with concrete manufacturing partners across North America to provide low-carbon concrete products to the building environment. CarbonCure’s technology introduces waste carbon dioxide into the concrete production process, where the CO2 is chemically converted into stone within the concrete.

CarbonCure is a leader in environmental and health transparency and works with its concrete manufacturing partners to issue Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) and Health Product Declarations (HPDs). These tools provide building designers and developers with transparent information about the environmental and health impacts of construction products. In July 2013, CarbonCure issued the first EPD for any concrete masonry product in North America for the Brampton Brick 20 cm CMU. In October 2013, CarbonCure issued the first HPD for any concrete product in North America with its partner Northfield Block.
