The most significant innovation in the cement indusry in 100 years
What do EP Henry, Solidia and Rutgers University all have in common? Well besides being NJ based, they are the partners that developed the technology that allows us to produce a paving stone that is superior in every way.
Scientists have long known that curing concrete with CO2 would make a stronger, more stable and sustainable product but the technology did not exist until the Solidia team partnered with the Rutgers University Materials Science Department and developed a successful formulation. In turn, while they could prove the science worked in the lab, they turned to EP Henry to bring it to scale in a “real world” scenario. Through an 8+ year partnership, we have done just that: created a concrete paver that cures through carbonization rather than hydration, reducing the carbon footprint up to 70% and conserving water by 80% while producing a paver that is stronger with more vibrant color, greater resistance to de-icing salts and is free from primary efflorescence.
SOLIDIA—based in Parsippany, NJ—has over 100 patents and is on a track to be the global leader in cement and concrete technology, drastically reducing the carbon footprint over products made with Ordinary Portland
Cement (OPC). It is expected that Solidia products will be available world-wide within five years.
EP HENRY is the first company to offer concrete products made with Solidia starting with a line of paving stones and extending to concrete block products in the near future.
