A. Jandris and Sons have continued their commitment to innovation and sustainability by partnering with CarbonCure Technologies. With CarbonCure, Jandris will be able to beneficially reuse waste carbon dioxide in their concrete masonry. As sustainable building practices move to the forefront of decision making for architects, contractors, and developers, Jandris has made the decision to incorporate CarbonCure’s technology to improve the sustainability of their masonry products.
“We continue to seek ways to improve the efficiency of our manufacturing process, which inherently lessens our impact on the environment,” said Heidi Jandris, Promotion and Marketing Director at Jandris. “Traditional values practiced out of necessity have evolved into present day resource conservation and efficiency.”
Jandris has remained a family business for over four generations, and during that time has been steadfast in bringing innovation to its masonry manufacturing process. Many sustainable best practices have been put into place at their plant: air quality control measures, oil reduction during curing, thermal mass cooling systems, installing solar panels, Portland cement reduction and now—with the help of CarbonCure—CO2 sequestration in concrete.
CarbonCure masonry products are available through Jandris’ concrete masonry plant in Gardner, Massachusetts. The United States Green Building Council recently released its list of top 10 states for LEED green building, with Massachusetts competing high at number five.
“The partnership with CarbonCure is a great fit for us, and demonstrates our commitment to innovation, the environment, and our customers,” said Heidi. “This is another example of how we’re working to be leaders in sustainability, in a region that is clearly passionate about building a stronger society for the future.”
