End to end Solution
Carboclave provides a service and an innovative solution to concrete producers, converting them into utilizers of captured carbon dioxide and suppliers of highly sought-after low-carbon products.
The Carboclave process boasts a fully automated user-friendly operation with sophisticated control and safety features.
The process' careful sequencing, distribution, and monitoring features ensure that all injected CO2 gas is permanently sequestered by the concrete products, and effectively diverted from the atmosphere.
Far from serving only as a storing medium, Carboclave products are regarded premium for being greener, stronger, and more durable than conventional benchmarks.
The Carboclave curing method reacts CO2 gas with components of cement, rapidly generating a hardened paste with a strongly cohesive structure. The process emanates heat, which builds up throughout curing to promote better consolidation, strength-development, and dimensional stability of the concrete product.
Benefits to ADOPTERS
Adoption demonstrates a commitment to greener and more sustainable best-practices, and offers the opportunity to turn a plant into a net-negative carbon footprint operation. The consumption of both energy and water is eliminated throughout curing, since the use of steam is completely averted. Carboclave products are regarded premium for being stronger, greener and more durable than conventional benchmarks.
Carboclave can be implemented as a retrofit modification, or as a built-to-spec new installation - without incurring non-recoverable capital costs. Thanks to our strategic partners, our technology is deliverable as a fully automated and safe turnkey solution with little downtime and no deviations from existing manufacturing processes and mix designs.
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.
