Easy to adopt anywhere in the world, the technologies produce a sustainable cement and cure concrete with CO2 instead of water, while utilizing manufacturers’ existing infrastructure, raw materials, formulations, production methods and specifications. Stronger, more durable and higher performing than traditional concrete, Solidia Concrete™ products cost less to produce, reduce water and energy use, and cure in less than 24 hours.
Cement is a crucial raw material in the production of concrete: 4 billion tons are produced globally per year, resulting in US$300 billion global market. Concrete is the second most utilized substance on the planet after water: approximately 33 billion tons are produced globally per year. The combined market value of cement and concrete worldwide is US$1.3 trillion. Currently in commercialization, Solidia creates value along the entire global supply chain.
Cement manufacturers represent approximately 5-7% of global greenhouse gas emissions. The Cement Sustainability Initiative of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) set 2050 CO2 reduction targets for the global cement industry. Solidia’s technology package will enable the industry to meet that goal well ahead of the target deadline.
Offering a profitable path to the future of building materials, Solidia exists where challenge and opportunity meet on a variety of global issues, including population growth, rapid urbanization, infrastructure decline, climate change and water scarcity.
