Renowned construction material supplier Chaney Enterprises has reportedly declared that it has joined forces with CarbonCure Technologies. As per sources, the partnership aims to install the latter’s technology at Chaney’s Waldorf concrete plant.
The announcement comes on the heels of the rising environment-safety awareness among construction industry contenders. With this alliance, Chaney joins the prestigious list of concrete producers who have made conscious efforts to lower carbon footprints of concrete.
Jeff Slagle, concrete operations manager, Chaney Enterprises, has been reportedly quoted to state that the company is indeed delighted to have add CarbonCure to its appreciable sustainable product portfolio. The Maryland & Washington, D.C. design & construction community is certainly one of the best sustainability minded groups in the United States, he says, adding that establishing a partnership with CarbonCure will enable Chaney Enterprises to help its widespread customers pool effectively reduce the carbon footprints of their residential and commercial establishments.
The alliance would also enable Chaney to continue delivering the highest quality concrete and exceptional service that the company’s loyal customers expect, he further affirms.
For the uninitiated, the CarbonCure technology injects recycled CO2 (carbon dioxide) into ready-mix concrete during the mixing procedure, during the course of which the CO2 is chemically transformed into a mineral, enabling its encapsulation within the concrete. If reports are to be believed, this process substantially improves the concrete’s compressive strength, thereby helping the company effectively reducing its cement content, while simultaneously maintaining its compressive strength requirements.
As per reliable reports, so far, a staggering 9,000 cubic yards of concrete manufactured with the help of the CarbonCure Technology have been categorically delivered to jobsites across Maryland. An approximate 160,000 pounds of CO2 have been saved in the year 2018. Reports suggest that this is equivalent to the amount of CO2 eliminated by an acre of forest over a mammoth period of 85 years.
