Based in Piscataway, N.J. (USA), Solidia Technologies® is a leading provider of decarbonization technologies and sustainable solutions to the construction and building materials industries. Solidia’s patented processes start with an energy-saving cement that dramatically reduces CO2 emissions at the kiln and then cure concrete with captured CO2 instead of water. Together, they improve manufacturing and produce higher-performing cement and concrete products while reducing their carbon footprint, the consumption of fresh water and energy during production, and landfill waste.
