HALIFAX, Nova Scotia, September 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —
carbon cure technologies, a global leader in carbon removal technology for the concrete industry, today announced the launch of its environmental product declaration service, CarbonCure Express EPD. EPDs are independently validated products that quantify carbon emissions, environmental impact, and other lifecycle information for specific products in the same way that nutrition labels report ingredients and calories for food. It is a document.
- CarbonCure Express EPD leverages real-time concrete plant data to automate and streamline the generation of product-specific environmental product declarations (EPDs).
- The new EPD service is CarbonCure’s latest offering in its platform of solutions and services for low-carbon concrete manufacturing.
- Recent industry research and new policy decisions indicates a surge in demand for EPD and public and private procurement of sustainable building materials such as concrete.
Carbon Cure Express EPD It streamlines the complex Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) process required for EPD generation by automating much of the data collection. This allows a concrete maker to quickly create his EPD that is accurate, product-specific, generated by a secure program, and available at an affordable price. With his LCA support from objective organizations such as the Athena Sustainable Materials Institute, and final verification by a trusted third party, designers and builders can trust the accuracy of his CarbonCure Express EPD to be well-informed at the time of procurement. comparisons can be made based on
Express EPD is the latest addition to CarbonCure’s platform of solutions and services. It includes a suite of carbon removal technologies, field-leading software, revenue-boosting carbon credits and current reporting reports, delivered as a subscription package and enhanced by personalized customer support.

CarbonCure Chairman and CEO Robert Niven said: “CarbonCure is proud to now provide our customers with all the tools they need to measure and reduce their carbon footprint, increase profitability and gain a competitive edge in the rapidly growing green building market. increase.”
The CarbonCure Express EPD launch follows passage of the US Inflation Reduction Act. New federal law includes major investments including $250 million to support adoption of EPDs and more than $4 billion to specify low-carbon concrete and other materials for federal building and transportation projects is included. Combined with the Byclean Executive Order requiring his EPD for all federal construction beginning in 2023, U.S. policy leverages the government’s enormous purchasing power to promote adoption and sustainability of his EPD in the industry. doing.
Meanwhile, recent Dodge Construction Network SmartMarket Overview 81% of structural engineers and 69% of contractors track the embodied carbon of their projects, revealing that the broader construction sector is actively seeking to reduce the carbon footprint of concrete. increase. Nearly all survey respondents indicate they use their EPD, and 68% of those EPD users report an increase in usage in the last year alone.
“As the demand for sustainable construction increases in the public and private sectors, so will the demand for EPD,” says Niven. “This goes far beyond the market signal. EPD has suddenly become the new industry standard. Designers and builders want to accurately compare the carbon footprint of their materials to their product-specific calculations. CarbonCure Express EPD enables concrete manufacturers to easily and cost-effectively create EPDs for their concrete products without disrupting plant operations.”
“CarbonCure’s EPD generation solution is simple, but very smart,” said Heather Brown, vice president of quality control and quality assurance at Irving Materials, Inc., which uses CarbonCure Express EPDs throughout its factory network. says. “imi is committed to sustainability, providing customers in the construction sector with high-quality concrete products with a low carbon footprint. and continue to deliver the superior products and services that define us.”
