Professor Richard Riman’s patented reactive hydrothermal liquid phase densification (rHLPD) process is the foundation for success for Solidia Technologies. The process, developed at Rutgers, enables carbon sequestration in concrete via CO2 activated binding resulting in finished concrete with up to 70 percent less embodied carbon than portland cement alternatives.  Read published article
