C-Crete Technologies



Concrete is the most widely used manufacturing material on the planet. The key strengthening ingredient in concrete is cement, whose production expends considerable amount of energy and contributes to 5-10% of CO2 emissions worldwide, making concrete the biggest climate change culprit outside of transportation and electricity-generation. C-Crete Technologies has engineered an innovative cement which is stronger than typical cement, while reducing both energy consumption and CO2 emitted during the cement manufacturing process.
