Johnson Concrete takes on CarbonCure masonry technology

Johnson Concrete Company, a family owned business in North Carolina, is using CarbonCure Masonry Technology in its Lexington plant.

The CarbonCure technology recycles waste carbon dioxide into concrete products to make Johnson concrete masonry units more environmentally friendly.

Charles Newsome, executive vice president, Johnson Concrete Company says the decision to license the CarbonCure technology was not taken lightly. “We completed extensive due diligence into the viability of the technology, and its potential to create value for Johnson Concrete, and we are now pleased to offer our customers concrete products with a reduced carbon footprint.”

The CarbonCure technology injects carbon dioxide gas captured from nearby smokestacks into concrete products during the mixing phase. Once introduced into the concrete mix, the carbon dioxide chemically converts into a solid calcium carbonate mineral. Since the gas has been converted into a mineral, it will never escape into the atmosphere. This means that Johnson Concrete will continue to provide high quality concrete products, and effectively get rid of local air pollution at the same time.

Robert Niven, chief executive, CarbonCure Technologies, said:  “I am excited by the opportunity to work with Charles Newsome and the Johnson family. Johnson Concrete Company has held a long-standing reputation as a highly ethical, quality-driven operation. On behalf of CarbonCure, I welcome Johnson Concrete Company to the growing CarbonCure family.”
