Leading with CarbonCure™ Technology

Superior Materials is partnering with CarbonCure™ technologies to reduce the carbon footprint of our concrete. This technology recycles waste carbon dioxide (CO2) to improve compressive strength and reduce the cement content of our mixes without impacting strength or performance.

Replacing OPC with PLC

As an alternative to ordinary portland cement (OPC) with the same durability and resilience, portland-limestone cement (PLC) typically provides 10 percent reduction in the carbon footprint. It performs just like the cement you’re used to using, follows the same specifications, the same mix design, only with a lower carbon profile.
