Vulcan, the nation’s largest producer of construction aggregates, and a major producer of construction materials, has announced the industry’s first ready mixed license with CarbonCure. CarbonCure’s technology uses carbon dioxide gas captured from the smokestacks of industrial emitters to improve the compressive strength of ready mixed concrete. The installation of the CarbonCure technology in Vulcan’s ready mixed concrete facility in Springfield, VA means that Washington, D.C. will be the world’s first metropolitan market with access to this sustainable concrete.
“We at Vulcan are proud of our commitment to sustainability,” said Diggs Bishop, Vice President/General Manager, Vulcan Materials Company, Mideast Division. “The CarbonCure technology, which improves both sustainability and strength, is the future of the concrete industry. We’re excited to announce that the future starts here, in Washington, D.C.”
