Beyond delivering benefits to the natural environment via waste site remediation, Nu-Rock technology can also reduce carbon emissions.
Nu-Rock’s progressive green technology is a ‘game changer’ when compared with old-fashioned and energy hungry concrete product manufacturing. Where traditional concrete product manufacturing requires mining and transportation of virgin materials, Nu-Rock does not. Where concrete product manufacturing emits large amounts of CO2 Nu-Rock does the opposite.
During the short curing process Nu-Rock products actively absorb and mineralise large quantities of Carbon Dioxide CO2 from the atmosphere. Looking to the future, Nu-Rock plants have been designed to incorporate CO2 injecting systems into the manufacturing process . The objective being to utlilise all CO2 captured by industry partners and ultimately to reduce their carbon emissions to zero.
Emissions free manufacturing
Nu-Rock‘s “Engineered Rock” technology involves an emissions free manufacturing process. A vast improvement on the centuries-old, energy-hungry processes involving the quarrying, transporting and kiln burning of limestone at 1500°C. Plus, the quarrying and transporting of precious and finite natural resources such as sand and aggregates. Or energy hungry Clay based product manufacturing that involves a 7-day warming and drying process at 500°C followed by a 3-day firing process at 1050°C.
