A breakthrough process for ready mixed gives John Cook, director of Technical Services at Atlanta’s Thomas Concrete, cause for enthusiasm this construction season. In late February, he and his team oversaw the installation of the CarbonCure Ready Mixed Technology at their Doraville, Ga. plant. They immediately began the process of lowering cementitious material content and dosing concrete mixes with carbon dioxide (CO2) gas using the CarbonCure injection system. Later in March, Cook and colleagues eagerly reviewed the 28-day strength data and confirmed: CO2 may be used as a viable cement replacement.
