Solidia Technologies® is a cement and concrete technology company that makes it easy and profitable to use CO2 to create superior and sustainable building materials. Solidia’s patented technology starts with a sustainable cement, cures concrete with CO2 instead of water , reduces carbon emissions up to 70%, and recycles 60 to 100% of the water used in production. Using the same raw materials and existing equipment as traditional concretes, the resulting CO2-cured concrete products are higher performing, cost less to produce, and cure in less than 24 hours.
Currently in commercialization for large- and small-scale applications, Solidia’s R&D collaborators include LafargeHolcim, Air Liquide, DOT ’s Federal Highway Administration, DOE ’s National Energy Technology Laboratory, Rutgers University , Purdue University , Ohio University , and the University of South Florida
Driven by the philosophy, “It can't just be green, it has to be better," Solidia has overcome the biggest obstacles to disruptive innovations: ease and cost of adoption. For over 50 years, scientists have tried to cure concrete with CO2 knowing the resulting product would be stronger and more durable; Solidia Concrete™ is the first to become commercially viable.
Solidia was named to the 2014 Global Cleantech 100 , the 2013 R&D Top 100 , a 2014 Best Place to Work in NJ, a finalist in both the 2014 CCEMC Grand Challenge First Round and the 2013 Katerva Award, and shortlisted to MIT’s Climate CoLab. Based in Piscataway, N.J. (USA), Solidia’s investors include Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers , Bright Capital , BASF , and BP.
