Rakennusbetoni expands product portfolio manufactured with Carbonaide’s precision curing technology

Finnish concrete product manufacturer Rakennusbetoni- ja Elementti Oy is expanding its product portfolio to pavements manufactured with Carbonaide’s precision curing technology!

The next commercially available product “Hulekivi” is manufactured in Hollola, Finland with 120 kg of CO₂ mineralized per cubic meter of concrete. This pavement product is an excellent example of Carbonaide’s decentralized carbon dioxide storage with market-leading CO₂ uptake levels in precast concrete mixtures.

On top of high mineralization levels, carbon curing increases product strength, improves microstructure, reduces water absorption, and eliminates calcium-based efflorescence by binding free lime into concrete. This extends the value of Carbonaide’s technology especially for colored pavement and garden products that must endure weathering and extreme conditions.

Products are sold by Rakennusbetoni and used for example in Keuda construction project in Uuden ajan rakentamisen festivaali held in Kerava 26.7.-7.8.2024.

Our joint product releases and technology are also presented at World Circular Economy Forum WCEF 2024 in Brussels, Belgium 15.-17.4 by our Chief Operating Officer Jonne Hirvonen. You can explore the first products in the Finnish expo area at WCEF and side-events organized by Uudenmaan liitto, Päijät-Hämeen liitto, Helsinki-Uusimaa Circular Valley, Nordic Circular Hotspot, Sitra and other organizers from the frontline of circular economy.
