- Converge Announces Mix AI™, Predictive AI to Help Contractors Decarbonize Concrete Construction
Mix AI™ helps contractors prevent concrete overdesign and reduce embodied carbon emissions
LONDON, Dec. 15, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Converge, a leading construction technology company, has announced Mix AI™. This new tool uses predictive AI to help contractors reduce concrete overdesign and embodied carbon emissions, promoting low-carbon construction practices.
Mix AI™ complements ConcreteDNA®, Converge's AI-based concrete monitoring and data management platform. It analyzes concrete data to provide artificial intelligence-based forecasts on the strength, temperature and carbon footprint of concrete, considering historical and future environmental conditions.
"There is an unprecedented opportunity to leverage AI in the building materials sector, to rapidly accelerate the decarbonization of one of the most difficult sectors to reduce. The impact of AI 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 artificial intelligence techniques to deliver a highly scalable, real-world digital solution to decarbonize the concrete sector," explained Raphael Scheps, co-founder and CEO of Converge.
Cement, crucial for the strength of concrete, accounts for around 8% of global carbon dioxide emissions. Mix AI™ allows contractors to choose concrete mixes with less cement, meeting performance specifications while reducing embodied carbon emissions.
Converge's collaboration with Stanley Black
In 2022, Converge raised a £15m Series A, led by Climate Investment, to accelerate its carbon impact. Mike Bishop, Chief Investment Officer, Climate Investment and Converge Board Member, noted: "Mix AI™ is a transformative product for concrete. It balances construction demands with sustainability efforts, offering an innovative solution to address the embodied carbon, while reducing costs and accelerating project schedules.
Converge's strategic partnerships span Europe, Asia and North America and promises to drive the decarbonization of construction through AI.
