Astec has entered a strategic partnership with CarbonCure Technologies whose product enables concrete producers to reduce their carbon footprint. Astec, which includes RexCon, CON-E-CO and BMH Systems brands, has the exclusive rights to offer the technology to concrete producers in the United States and Canada.
Concrete has a large carbon footprint due to cement production. The technology works by injecting CO2, captured by industrial gas companies, during the mixing process. The result is a strong, high-performing concrete which uses less cement therefore reducing the project’s embodied carbon footprint.
