Solidia takes a giant step that leaves a small footprint.

Solidia’s broad global adoption would:

  • a. lower concrete’s carbon footprint by up to 70% - equal to 1.5 gigatonnes per year, or 4% of global CO2 emissions;
  • b. dramatically reduce water usage in concrete manfacturing, saving up to 3 trillion liters of freshwater a year, enough to fill one million Olympic swimming pools;
  • c. reduce cement plant energy consumption by approximately 260 million oil barrels, or 67 million tonnes of coal;
  • d. avoid almost 100 million tonnes of concrete in landfills; and,
  • e. cut mercury, nitrogen oxide, and sulphur oxide emissions in half.

Solidia also creates value for CO2, turning it from global issue to valuable commodity. Over a 5-year period, Solidia’s need for CO2 will more than double the existing market for CO2.

Specific Benefits of Solidia Concrete for Manufacturers

  • It leverages the same manufacturing, process, equipment, and raw materials.
  • It is adaptable to existing production lines.
  • It doesn’t consume water, instead curing with CO2.
  • It saves time - Solidia Concrete cures in a single day as opposed to the 28 days required for OPC to reach full strength.
  • It performs better and is more durable than traditional concrete.
  • It offers a broader, more vibrant color palette.
  • It enables just-in-time production and delivery.

Superior Products

  • 28-day strength in 24 hours.
  • No primary efflorescence.
  • Increased durability.
  • Its lighter color makes it a perfect replacement for white cement.
  • Wider, more durable color palette.

Improved Process

  • Rapid (24-hour vs. 28-day), intelligent curing.
  • Greater color and quality consistency.
  • Reduced inventory requirement (due to faster cure time).
  • Almost 100% green material waste recycle.

Solidia offers turnkey solutions by aligning the cement, CO2, and equipment partners, easily integrating its technologies into existing business practices.
