Sharing a landmark moment, Canadian carbon dioxide (CO2) removal company CarbonCure today (16th Dec) confirmed that its 500th carbon mineralisation system has been sold to one of its visionary concrete producer partners.
Just five years after commercialisation, CarbonCure will soon install this 500th system at the family-owned Don Chapin Company in Salinas, California, part of a three-plant rollout of CarbonCure Ready Mix.
“We’re truly honoured that we will soon operate CarbonCure’s 500th carbon mineralisation system in the world. Our partnership with CarbonCure demonstrates our commitment to delivering a greener concrete product to our customers across the Tri-County Area,” said Don Chapin, Jr., President at the Don Chapin Company.
“We’re ready to roll up our sleeves and begin using CarbonCure to build a more sustainable environment for future generations,” he continued.
The news comes as the company also celebrates two million truckloads of low carbon concrete made by its producer partners using its technologies – with nearly one million of those truckloads having been delivered in 2021.
On the milestones, Rob Niven, Chair and CEO of CarbonCure, said, “These major milestones, and their increasing frequency, are clear indicators that CarbonCure is scaling rapidly and making tremendous progress toward our ultimate goal to reduce and remove 500 million metric tons of carbon emissions annually by 2030.
“Looking back, 2021 has been a banner year for CarbonCure. We’re grateful to have such innovative partners. And I am very excited for what’s ahead in 2022.”
