Roberts Oxygen Company, Inc., America’s leading independent distributor of compressed industrial gases, has teamed up with CarbonCure Technologies to provide a complete solution for innovative carbon dioxide utilization for the concrete industry in Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey.
The CarbonCure Technology recycles carbon dioxide (CO2) in order to improve the compressive strength of concrete and enable ready mix concrete producers to realize manufacturing cost savings while reducing their carbon footprint. Roberts Oxygen is a family owned business with 47 locations serving 9 states spanning Pennsylvania to Florida that distributes purified CO2 sourced from industrial emitters.
This partnership recognizes Roberts Oxygen as the sole preferred supplier of CO2 for concrete producers who install the CarbonCure technology at concrete plants in Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey. In exchange, Roberts Oxygen will leverage its customer service-oriented local distribution network to promote CarbonCure’s innovative solution to regional concrete producers.
“The CarbonCure Technology presents a fantastic new approach to CO2 utilization,” says Scott Van Pelt, Vice President Sales at Roberts Oxygen. “The introduction of CO2 into concrete production chemically converts and permanently captures the CO2, which is positive for the environment. By partnering with CarbonCure, we can now provide an enhanced service-oriented solution for concrete producers who choose to adopt this sustainable technology.”
This partnership builds upon previous successful collaborations between the two companies that date back to 2015. Roberts Oxygen currently supplies CO2 to 4 CarbonCure customers with 7 unique tank installations. With the largest fleet of microbulk CO2 trucks in the mid-Atlantic region, Roberts Oxygen is best positioned to provide consistent, reliable and speedy service to CarbonCure customers.
John Hawkins, Production Manager at Vulcan Materials Company, who sources CO2 from Roberts Oxygen for use with the CarbonCure Technology, says, “Roberts Oxygen has incredible customer service. When we first started using CarbonCure’s technology in our plants two years ago, the concept of introducing CO2 into concrete manufacturing was a new experience, but Roberts Oxygen helped make this transition easy for us at Vulcan. In the 2 years since we installed it, Roberts Oxygen has responded to our every need and provided reliable CO2 supply.”
