Concrete going green?

July 31, 2008 at 9:17 pm Leave a comment

That’s right, the worlds most common building material is getting some help on its green image.

A Canadian company has come up with as yet unproven technological process to store CO2 in concrete. Now this method only applies to precast concrete parts but has a huge potential to reduce overall global CO2 emissions by 1% overall.

This process has been created by Carbon Sense Solutions, Inc (http://www.carbonsensesolutions.com/) and has been covered by Inhabitat.com (http://www.inhabitat.com/), CanWest News (http://www.carbonsensesolutions.com/documents/NSFirmTakingConcreteStepsinCarbonBattle-CanwestNewsJuly252008.pdf) and ABC News (http://www.carbonsensesolutions.com/documents/ABCNews_July2008_ClimateSolution_MakeHousesOutofCO2.pdf).

I hope that this process is widely distributed after being proven out and that the consulting firm doesn’t get too greedy in its charges for the intellectual property.  No word on any possible LEED points yet either….Just kidding as it was only announced this week.

As always I thank you for your time and interest. Please take the time to Digg, Stumble Upon or add to the other social network of your choice to help me spread the word about these issues. Please forward any questions or suggestions to: askthefm@gmail.com
