Compass Datacenters announced that CarbonCure Technology will be used for the company’s next data centers construction. CarbonCure concrete is developed by Nova Scotia-based CarbonCure Technologies. The procedure includes injecting re-captured industrial CO2 into the concrete manufacturing process, dramatically reducing the volume of cement required in the mixing of concrete while also permanently removing CO2 from the atmosphere.
Removes the equivalent CO2 from powering over 560 Homes
The retrofit CarbonCure Technology enables concrete producers to use waste CO2 to produce stronger, more sustainable concrete. Nancy Novak, Compass Chief Innovation Officer said,
“Our data centers use concrete in many areas, from foundations and sidewalks to pre-cast walls and roofing. We estimate using CarbonCure will reduce our CO2 footprint by an average of 1,800 tons per campus. That’s the equivalent CO2 sequestered by 2,100 acres of forest or driving a car 4 million miles. Our research and development investments are unique to the data center provider space but continually pay off with a lower-cost, faster-to-build, high-quality product.”
