AI-driven platform, SmartMix, empowers ready-mix producers and is recognized for its achievement in providing solutions to reduce the environmental impact of concrete. 


OTTAWA, Ontario – Giatec®, global leader in concrete technology platforms, is proud to announce that its AI-powered mix management platform, SmartMix™, has been named the winner of the 2024 Environmental Achievement Award by the Canadian Construction Association (CCA). This award was created to recognize its members who have shown exemplary environmental advancements within the Canadian construction industry. 

Concrete production and cement usage account for approximately two billion tons of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions or eight percent of global CO2 pollution based on a global production rate of 20 billion tons (10 billion cubic yards) annually. The industry has been accustomed to working with limited visibility through outdated systems, unconnected data, and insufficient time for analysis to make informed decisions resulting in unoptimized and overdesigned mix designs, both in cost and environmental impact.  

Giatec’s SmartMix seamlessly integrates within ready-mix producers’ software operations, and with Roxi™, Giatec’s proprietary AI algorithm used to amalgamate data across thousands of mixes, gives insight into the greatest opportunities for optimization. Concrete producers can then generate infinite scenarios for every project variability to choose the right mix every time. This will allow for a reduction in both CO2 emissions and mix costs by up to 20 percent while tackling the industry-wide issue of overdesigning with cement just to prevent potential performance issues.   

“I want to extend our sincere appreciation to CCA for this honor. This award highlights the immense and immediate significance of SmartMix in advancing concrete technology and also encourages us to keep pursuing groundbreaking solutions that contribute to a more sustainable and efficient construction industry, said Pouria Ghods, CEO and Co-Founder of Giatec. “As we celebrate this achievement, let us also look to the future with a renewed commitment to innovation, sustainability, and excellence. Together, we can continue to make a significant impact on the construction world and beyond.” 

With this most recent accolade, SmartMix displays, once again, its pivotal role in advancing sustainability efforts within the concrete industry and emerges as a revolutionary solution poised to enhance competitiveness, margins, and an environmental breakthrough in concrete production.
