For the fourth consecutive year, CarbonCure Technologies, a company leading a mission to reduce the carbon footprint of the concrete industry, has been named in the prestigious 2019 Global Cleantech 100.
An annual guide to the leading companies and themes in sustainable innovation, the Global Cleantech 100 features the private, independent, for-profit companies best positioned to solve tomorrow’s clean technology challenges. This year marks the 10th edition of the list.
Concrete is the second most abundant man-made material in the world, and cement, its key ingredient, is responsible for an estimated 7% of global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. The proprietary CarbonCure Technology uses recycled CO2 to improve the manufacturing process of concrete, while reducing the carbon footprint of the resulting concrete products.
CarbonCure is a recognised leader in the global CO2 Capture and Utilisation (CCU) industry, estimated to be valued at $1 trillion by 2030.
“The Global Cleantech 100 award recognises successes achieved by our team and partners at making concrete more sustainable and prosperous,” said Rob Niven, Founder and CEO of CarbonCure.
“This prestigious recognition will play a critical role in helping us realise our goals of technological advancements and geographic expansion, with the ultimate vision aimed toward reducing up to 500 megatonnes of CO2 annually.”
The list combines Cleantech Group’s research data with qualitative judgements from nominations and insight from a global 87-member expert panel comprised of leading investors and experts from corporations and industrials active in technology and innovation scouting.
From pioneers and veterans to new entrants, the expert panel broadly represents the global cleantech community and results in a list with a powerful base of respect and support from many important players within the cleantech innovation ecosystem.
