Sustainability in Concrete Control

With the confidence of temperature control, our customers build for the future. They build with durable concrete and reduce waste.


Reduce Carbon Emissions

NITROcrete reduced CO2 emissions by 83% when compared to conventional ice cooling in a third party life cycle analysis report.


Avoid Waste

By meeting temperature specification, concrete avoids wasted loads, thereby avoiding the subsequent energy waste during production.


Lower Energy Consumption

With a more streamlined process, NITROcrete means a 66% reduction in energy usage when compared to conventional ice cooling.


Curtail Particulate Matter

Compared with conventional ice cooling, NITROcrete™ produces 87% less particulate matter.


Eliminate Polythene Bags

Without the need for thousands of ice bags for cooling, liquid nitrogen eliminates polythene bag waste from ice.


Prevent Injury

NITROcrete plays a crucial roll in our industry partners' comprehensive plans to reduce strain on labor to make work safer and easier.
