Carboncure In Global Cleantech 100
January 24th, 2017
CarbonCure Technologies, the Halifax company whose method of making concrete reduces carbon emissions, has been named in the prestigious 2017 Global Cleantech 100, produced by Cleantech Group, or CTG.
The Global Cleantech 100 represents the most innovative and promising ideas impacting the future of a wide range of industries. Featuring companies that are best positioned to solve tomorrow’s clean technology challenges, the Global Cleantech 100 is a comprehensive list of private companies with the highest potential to make significant market impact within a five- to 10-year timeframe.
This year, the nominations amounted to a record 9,900 distinct companies from 77 countries.
“We are honoured to receive this award for the second year in a row,” CarbonCure Founder Robert Niven said in a statement. “We are proud to be leading the industry with our solution that is available today for concrete producers to sequester waste CO2 to make concrete both greener and stronger.”
CarbonCure’s CO2-utilization technology is one of a select few commercially available solutions that could help reduce global emissions by more than 10 percent by 2030.
Niven will be in San Francisco this week for the Cleantech Forum, where the Global Cleantech 100 award winners will be revealed. He will be presenting at the event, alongside Issam Dairanieh, CEO of CO2 Sciences, and Lars-Erik Gartner, Innovation Technology Specialist of The Linde Group in a session called “Carbon-based products: An overlooked trillion-dollar market opportunity?” The session will describe how scalable innovations in the “carbon-based products industry”, such as CarbonCure’s, could represent a market size approaching $1 trillion by the year 2030.
This award announcement comes on the heels of several other recent awards for CarbonCure. Recently, CarbonCure received the 2016 Manning Innovation Award, and is a semi-finalist in the $20 million NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE.
