CarbonCure, Northfield sign licensing agreement

- Comments: 0

Clean technology innovator CarbonCure Technologies Inc, has signed a licensing agreement with Northfield, a division of Oldcastle Inc, the largest producer of concrete masonry and precast products in North America. Since 1949, Northfield has been a leading manufacturer of masonry products in the Midwest, and was acquired by Oldcastle in 2003.

CarbonCure will install its retrofit carbon sequestering technology in Northfield’s concrete products plant in Morris, IL. By mid-summer, the plant’s three machines will be manufacturing architectural concrete products that contain sequestered CO2 using CarbonCure’s proprietary technology. Northfield supplies product directly to commercial masonry and residential projects, and through retail outlets including Home Depot and Lowe’s.
