ImerFill®: Reducing Concrete’s Carbon Footprint

Calcium carbonate has been researched and developed as a substitute for part of the Portland cement or for alternative cement replacement materials in concrete mixes. For every short ton of cement replaced, ImerFill products reduce CO2 emissions by 1716 pounds, improving the carbon footprint of the finished concrete.

The ImerFill product family, developed in 2008, is designed specifically for cement-based applications. ImerFill products are engineered minerals that enhance the properties of concrete and other cement-based products while reducing the amount of water needed for their application.
