Our products are ready to ship immediately after curing. These savings in time translate to higher yields and increases in sales for our producers.
With carbon dioxide as the primary input, Carboclave eliminates fuel consumption and all related costs throughout the curing process.
Conventional steam curing consumes roughly 1L of water per standard concrete masonry unit (CMU). Our approach uses zero water.
On top of sparing the planet, potential production and material costs savings could be realized by adopting Carboclave technology.
Conventional methods of production consume large amounts of energy and water.
This leads to products with high embodied carbon and places immense pressures on our planet.
HOW WE COMPARE
The Carboclave method not only eliminates energy and water consumption but also sequesters captured CO2 emissions and offsets embodied carbon by reducing clinker use.
Our approach alleviates environmental pressures, empowering our clients to support a healthier planet.
Using Carboclave for a few years now, and we have had nothing but great success. The products are consistent with nice vibrant colors and great strengths. We have had an increase in orders and are now converting another one of our kilns to the Carboclave process. We look forward to furthering our success with Carboclave.
Having a masonry product offering that provides structural capability, aesthetic value and helps to reduce a project’s carbon footprint will help keep masonry in the forefront of a designer’s mind when constructing responsible and resilient buildings.
SALES DIRECTOR, ARCHITECTURAL MASONRY
After looking at all options available to maximize carbon reduction in our process, it was clear that Carboclavemade the most sense. It offers enhanced product capability and quality while greatly reducing our environmental impact
By converting our plant to Carboclave, we dramatically decreased our energy costs and found increased blocks strengths.
GENERAL MANAGER, BLOCKS DIVISION
The Carboclave tech will prepare us for the industry’s imminent and necessary shift to low-carbon concrete. Some of the firsthand benefits we experienced with the Carboclave process include substantial reduction in the carbon footprint of concrete blocks and pavers, near elimination of primary efflorescence, faster curing time, and rapid strength gain. These also facilitated the successful use of recycled aggregates in masonry at a 100% replacement rate, arguably demonstrating the most sustainable concrete product yet.
