Giatec® Reduces Cement Utilization and CO2 Air pollution With Backing From Sustainable Growth Expertise Canada

Giatec®, world chief in concrete testing applied sciences, has introduced that it’s working to cut back cement utilization on development jobsites with its synthetic intelligence program (AI) Roxi™, with funding and help from Sustainable Growth Expertise Canada (SDTC). SDTC helps Canadian entrepreneurs speed up the event and deployment of worldwide aggressive clear expertise options. 

Cement isn’t solely the costliest ingredient in a concrete combine, however its manufacturing is additionally accountable for 8% of world CO2 emissions. In a development mission, ready-mix concrete producers design concrete mixes to satisfy particular efficiency standards to attain energy targets rapidly.  

Nonetheless, the efficiency of concrete may be affected by varied exterior components together with the standard variations in uncooked supplies, ambient situations, supply time, pouring processes, jobsite curing situations, and so forth. Presently, concrete producers have restricted information and visibility into these components, thus missing correct testing and monitoring capabilities. This results in overdesigning concrete combination by including extra cement than crucial to forestall potential efficiency points.

Giatec’s proprietary sensing expertise mixed with its real-time, predictive AI-based mannequin Roxi permits ready-mix producers to alter the quantity of cement wanted and meet concrete energy targets extra precisely. In consequence, this may minimize at the very least 400 million tons of greenhouse fuel (GHG) emissions yearly, the equal of taking 110 million automobiles off the street.  

“At SDTC, we’re dedicated to advance Canada’s 2050 Internet-Zero targets by strengthening help for local weather tech entrepreneurs who’re driving the inexperienced financial system ahead,” mentioned Leah Lawrence, President and CEO, SDTC. “We’re proud to help corporations like Giatec which might be on the cusp of local weather tech innovation and delivering substantial options to assist struggle local weather change.”  

“Primarily based on two case research, we estimate that as much as 20% discount in cement utilization may be achieved utilizing our expertise. With this funding, Giatec will present an answer that may convey not solely financial but additionally environmental advantages by lowering CO2 emission, air air pollution, and water use within the development trade,” says Pouria Ghods, Giatec co-founder and CEO.  

Roxi was the primary AI program created for concrete testing, constructed for Giatec’s award-winning SmartRock™ wi-fi concrete sensors. SmartRock has been utilized in over 8,000 development initiatives throughout 80 international locations, giving Roxi entry to tens of millions of knowledge factors.  


Giatec is a worldwide firm revolutionizing the development trade by bringing good testing applied sciences and real-time information assortment to the forefront of each jobsite. Giatec’s suite of {hardware} & software program merchandise has leveraged superior applied sciences such as AI and Web of Issues (IoT), together with wi-fi concrete sensors, cellular apps, and superior non-destructive applied sciences (NDT) to drive innovation all through concrete’s lifecycle and cut back concrete’s carbon footprint.
