Halifax green tech firm CarbonCure Technologies Inc. has signed a deal with one of the biggest masonry producers in the northeastern United States, reports The Chronicle Herald.
Anchor Concrete Products, a division of Oldcastle APG, has licensed CarbonCure’s green concrete technology, which injects waste carbon dioxide (CO2) into concrete to make it greener and stronger, the newspaper reports.
The deal with Anchor Concrete Products comes five months after CarbonCure signed a licensing agreement with Northfield Block, also a division of Oldcastle and the leading masonry producer in the Midwestern U.S.
Under the new deal, Anchor Concrete Products will install CarbonCure’s retrofit technology in their flagship New Jersey plant with the option to manufacture the product in the greater Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, New York City, Hartford, Providence and Boston markets.
CarbonCure’s technology is available for concrete blocks, pavers and segmental retaining walls. The company plans to expand to the precast and ready-mix markets next year.
