CarbonCure Technologies (CarbonCure) has been named for the third consecutive year in the Global Cleantech 100. It features companies which are companies which are considered to be the best positioned at solving the future’s clean technology challenges and ranks private companies with the highest potential to make significant market impact within a 5-10-year timeframe.
The proprietary of CarbonCure is licensed without Capex to concrete producers to recycle waste carbon dioxide (CO2) into concrete. It is sourced from local industrial emitters and injected into concrete during production, where the CO2 is converted into a fine mineral that strengthens concrete. The material performance improvement is leveraged to further reduce the greenhouse gas emission intensity and create new cost efficiencies and a differentiated sales advantage for concrete producers.
Robert Niven, CEO of CarbonCure, said: “We are truly honoured to receive this recognition for the third year. CarbonCure has worked diligently with our partners to create sustainable solutions that can be adopted and scaled globally today. We look forward to uncovering new opportunities and partners to accelerate the growth of the CO2 utilization technology market.”
Richard Youngman, CEO, CTG (Cleantech Group), said: “The ongoing mainstreaming of clean technology solutions and the rise in their strategic importance was evidenced by an unprecedented burst of recent M&A activity. For the first time, now in its 9th year, four of this year’s Global Cleantech 100 companies were acquired by multi-nationals between the striking of the final list (in September 2017) and its official release today (in January 2018). More will surely follow if this set of companies achieve even half of their anticipated impact.”
This selection is collated by combining proprietary CTG research data, with weighted qualitative judgments from hundreds of nominations, and specific inputs from a global 86-person Expert Panel. To qualify for the list, companies must be independent, for-profit, cleantech companies that are not listed on any major stock exchange.
A complete list of the 100 companies was revealed on the 22 January at the 16th annual CleanTech Forum San Francisco can be found here.
