Solidia Technologies produces a new form of concrete—Solidia Concrete—that reduces the carbon emissions footprint associated with the production of cement and the use of cement in concrete products by up to 70 percent. The cement industry is the second largest industrial emitter of CO2, surpassed only by electric power generation. Solidia Cement will dramatically help reduce the industry’s CO2 emissions.

Solidia Technologies captures CO2 emitted at the cement plant and then stores the CO2 during the curing of the concrete. Based on cement designs and curing technologies jointly developed by Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, and Solidia, the innovation does not significantly alter any elements of the current cement manufacturing process.
