LafargeHolcim and Solidia Technologies announced last week that they have launched a new business in the US that will supply customers with reduced CO2 cement to be used in the production of precast concrete. The first customer will be the Wrightstown, New Jersey, plant of EP Henry, a national concrete products supplier that participated in LafargeHolcim's and Solidia's pilot of the product. The product is the result of a six-year collaboration between LaFargeHolcim and Solidia and uses a special binder, produced at lower temperatures, and patented curing process that uses CO2 rather than water. By adding and absorbing CO2, Solidia Concrete reaches strength in less than 24 hours unlike precast concrete made with Portland cement, which takes 28 days to reach strength.

Solidia reduces the overall carbon footprint in precast concrete by 70%. In addition, the new product reduces the cement plant’s carbon emissions by up to 40%.
