As part of its partnership with Solidia Technologies, LafargeHolcim has developed a reduced CO2 cement that together with a proprietary concrete mix design, and a specialized curing process utilizing CO2 creates a concrete with up to 70% lower carbon footprint than traditional Ordinary Portland Cement systems. Precast companies using the technology have demonstrated improved aesthetics of the concrete products from no efflorescence and more vibrant colours. Furthermore they have benefited from cost reductions and increased production capacity thanks to full concrete strength in under 1 day. By transforming CO2 into a usable material, Solidia products can give concrete paving and block producers a competitive edge.
Solidia is available in the USA.
