Converge Launches Mix AI: A Innovative Instrument for Decarbonizing Concrete and Sustainable Construction
This innovative tool promotes low-carbon construction methods by helping contractors reduce embodied carbon emissions and overdesign of concrete with predictive AI.
Converge has declared that Mix AI is now live. This innovative tool promotes low-carbon construction methods by helping contractors reduce embodied carbon emissions and overdesign of concrete with predictive AI.
Converge’s AI-powered concrete monitoring and data management platform, ConcreteDNA, is enhanced by Mix AI. By taking into account past and future environmental circumstances, it analyzes concrete data to provide AI-based estimates of concrete strength, temperature, and carbon footprint.
“There is an unprecedented opportunity to leverage AI in the building material sector, to rapidly accelerate the decarbonization of one of the hardest-to-abate sectors. AI’s impact on climate and carbon was a key discussion topic at the UN SDG summit earlier this year, and a potential solution to many of the challenges being discussed at COP28 this week. Through Mix AI, Converge is using cutting-edge AI techniques to deliver a real-world, highly-scalable digital solution to decarbonize the concrete sector,” said Raphael Scheps, co-founder and CEO of Converge.
About 8% of carbon dioxide emissions worldwide are caused by cement, which gives concrete its strength. With the help of Mix AI, contractors may select concrete mixes that require less cement to achieve performance requirements and reduce embodied carbon emissions.
The significance of Mix AI is reinforced by Converge’s partnership with Stanley Black and Decker in North America. “Mix AI will enable our clients to select carbon-efficient mixtures and provide excellent, on-time concrete projects. “It’s win, our customers win, and the environment ,” Brad Roberts, head of Stanley Black & Decker’s building technologies, remarked.
“Mix AI is a transformative product for concrete. It balances construction demands with sustainability efforts, offering an innovative solution to address embodied carbon, while simultaneously reducing costs and accelerating project timelines,” said Mike Bishop, investment director, climate investment and Converge board member.
