Page 36 of 71 April 2018 • 35 Atlanta-based Argos USA has anchored a five-member consortium tar- geting a closed loop model of carbon dioxide capture and recycling in cement and concrete production. In an early-2018 demonstration, the company used CO 2 from its Calera, Ala., cement plant in commercial concrete produced at its Glenwood, Ga., batch plant. That Atlanta-area ready mixed operation is among nearly 100 sites, primarily in the U.S., equipped with CarbonCure Technologies CO 2 storage and injection devices. The CarbonCure process uses the greenhouse gas to promote cement hydration in high to zero slump concrete. Joining Argos and CarbonCure in the consortium are Sustainable Energy Solutions, a cyrogenic CO 2 capture technology developer; Prax- air, a specialist in delivery of CO 2 and other industrial gases; and, Kline Consulting LLC, whose principal, 21-year Lafarge Group veteran John Kline, oversaw the Argos USA cement-concrete demonstration. The closed loop CO 2 project is an extension of CarbonCure's participation in the $20 million NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE Challenge, which incen- tivizes and accelerates development of integrated carbon capture and utilization methods. — CarbonCure Technologies, Halifax, N.S.
