Hawkeye Ready Mix and CarbonCure Team Up to Reduce Carbon Footprint
Hawkeye Ready Mix is proud to announce their partnership with the award winning CarbonCure Technologies to reduce the embodied carbon footprint of concrete.
CarbonCure’s technology for ready mix enables concrete producers to inject waste carbon dioxide (CO₂) emissions into their concrete during mixing. Once injected, the CO₂ undergoes a process known as mineralization, where it chemically converts into a nano-mineral and becomes permanently embedded in the concrete. The mineralized CO₂ increases the strength of the concrete and enables the reduction of cement content in mixes without sacrificing strength, further reducing the carbon footprint of the concrete.
“We are excited to offer this innovative and sustainable option to our customers. We know this will have a positive environmental impact in our community while creating strong and resilient structures that are built to last,” explained General Manager, Klint Kirk.
Hawkeye Ready Mix will be providing concrete made with the CarbonCure Technology on select mixes from their Iowa City location.
