Canadian clean technology company CarbonCure Technologies has partnered with Singapore concrete innovation company Pan-United Corporation to bring CarbonCure’s breakthrough CO2 recycling technology for concrete manufacturing to Asian markets.

Canadian clean technology company CarbonCure Technologies has partnered with Singapore concrete innovation company Pan-United Corporation to bring CarbonCure’s breakthrough CO2 recycling technology for concrete manufacturing to Asian markets.

The CarbonCure technology chemically converts carbon dioxide captured from industrial emitters into a nano-mineral that becomes permanently embedded within concrete.

The process improves concrete’s compressive strength and enables concrete producers to realise manufacturing efficiencies while reducing the concrete’s carbon footprint. CarbonCure’s technology has the potential to save more than 4,000 tonnes CO2 annually at each Pan-United concrete plant.

CarbonCure Founder and CEO Rob Niven was represented by Christain Weisenburger, CarbonCure’s General Counsel. The Pan-United signatory was its Executive Director Ken Loh.

Rob Niven, CarbonCure’s CEO, said, “Singapore is a vital gateway to CarbonCure’s entry into Asia to further our global efforts to mitigate harmful carbon emissions from the built environment.”

“We are delighted and convinced that we have a like-minded and strong partner in Pan-United, which is the industry leader in Southeast Asia for advancing green concrete initiatives. Pan-United’s technology capabilities in the concrete and logistics space are second to none in this region.”

Employing more than 1,500 people, Pan-United is Singapore’s largest concrete and cement company, with operations expanding across Malaysia, Indonesia, and Vietnam.

It is the first concrete firm to attain the Singapore Green Building Council’s (SGBC’s) ‘Leader’ certification, which is the SGBC’s highest level of sustainability certification.

Mr Ken Loh, Pan-United Executive Director, said, “Pan-United is excited to expand our portfolio of sustainable initiatives with the addition of CarbonCure’s unique breakthrough technology.”

“We view its clean technology as very useful in addressing the urgent climatic need to reduce the global carbon footprint. Pan-United intends to expand the use of the CarbonCure Technology by introducing it to other ready mix concrete producers in Singapore and the region.”

“While reducing the overall carbon footprint, we believe this special process has multiple benefits to enable sustainability gains not only for concrete producers and the construction industry but also for developers in their building projects.”
