CarbonCure’s retrofit technology chemically sequesters waste carbon dioxide during the concrete manufacturing process to make greener and stronger concrete.
Halifax’s CarbonCure Technologies, one of the world’s leading CO2-utilization technology providers, has been named in the prestigious 2017 Global Cleantech 100, produced by CTG (Cleantech Group). CarbonCure’s retrofit technology chemically sequesters waste carbon dioxide during the concrete manufacturing process to make greener and stronger concrete.
The Global Cleantech 100 represents the most innovative and promising ideas impacting the future of a wide-range of industries. Featuring companies that are best positioned to solve tomorrow’s clean technology challenges, the Global Cleantech 100 is a comprehensive list of private companies with the highest potential to make significant market impact within a 5 to 10 year timeframe.
This year, a record number of nominations were received: 9,900 distinct companies from 77 countries.
“We are honoured to receive this award for the second year in a row. We are proud to be leading the industry with our solution that is available today for concrete producers to sequester waste CO2 to make concrete both greener and stronger,” said Robert Niven, CarbonCure’s CEO and founder.
CarbonCure’s CO2-utilization technology is one of a select few commercially available solutions that could help reduce global emissions by more than 10 per cent by 2030.
Robert will be in San Francisco this week for the Cleantech Forum, where the Global Cleantech 100 award winners will be revealed. Robert will be presenting at the event alongside Dr. Issam Dairanieh, CEO of CO2 Sciences, and Dr. Lars-Erik Gartner, Innovation Technology Specialist of The Linde Group in a session called “Carbon-based products: An overlooked trillion dollar market opportunity?“. The session will describe how scalable innovations in the “carbon-based products industry”, such as CarbonCure’s, could represent a market size approaching $1 trillion by the year 2030.
This award announcement comes on the heels of several other recent awards for CarbonCure. Recently, CarbonCure received the 2016 Manning Innovation Award, and was listed as a semi-finalist in the $20 million NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE.
