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.
Because green building has become mainstream, our partners are looking for ways to go beyond LEED. CarbonCure concrete products are unique because they are made using an innovative process that repurposes waste CO2 to make better concrete. With our partners, we can achieve even greener concrete by integrating the CarbonCure system with other materials and technologies.

The backbone of the world around us in made up of concrete. Help us transform the built environment by joining the movement to use low-carbon concrete wherever possible.
Groundbreaking EPD and HPD issued for concrete masonry products
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 and its partner Atlas Block issued the first EPD for any concrete masonry product in North America. In October 2013, CarbonCure issued the first HPD for any concrete product in North America with its partner Northfield Block.
