Carboclave originally began as an initiative to find a safer, greener alternative to autoclave curing. The company was incorporated in 2016 after demonstrating a tier of successes in developing, validating, and scaling up a more sustainable technology that not only outperformed autoclaving but also all other conventional concrete curing methods.
Today, turnkey modular system installation and retrofit modifications are available to our customers.
Carboclave is headquartered in Kitchener, ON, Canada, with extended R&D facilities in Tonawanda, NY, USA
Praxair (a member of the Linde Group) is a leading global gas supplier. In addition to CO2 gas, Praxair also provides specially designed process control and safety systems used by the Carboclave technology. All CO2 used by the process is emission-sourced, ensuring true carbon diversion from the atmosphere. Praxair is listed in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index.
Besser is a leader and longstanding producer of concrete manufacturing equipment and systems. Besser provides developmental, engineering, and installation support to all adopters of the Carboclave technology.
The technology presents an economic and environmental alternative to conventional curing, while also ensuring more resilient end-products. An adopter can eliminate the consumption of energy and water during curing since the use of steam is completely averted with the Carboclave process. Depending on certain parameters, further savings could be realized from the reduction of cement, with no compromise in meeting product performance criteria.
The technology can be readily implemented as a retrofit modification to existing operations, or as a built-to-spec new installation, without incurring heavy non-recoverable capital costs. It is also deployable worldwide thanks to the help of our strategic partners Praxair and Besser. The process is delivered as a turnkey product with fully automated operation and safety protocols.
Adoption demonstrates a commitment to greener and more sustainable best-practices, and the opportunity to turn a plant into a net-negative carbon footprint operation.

No Water & Energy During Curing
The preferable way to proceed in the future would be to have a symbiotic relationship between carbon sources and sinks, where captured CO2 from emission-intensive operations would be used as feedstock for concrete production.
Concrete is the most used building material in the world, with the synthesis of its cement component contributing heavily to carbon emissions.
