Disruptive Live’s interview with Mark Collin, Director at Excool, from this year’s Data Centre World at the London ExCeL. Excool is a fully developed and purpose designed data center cooling product, which the company claims is the most efficient indirect economiser in the world in both terms of water and energy usage.
Canadian data centre provider Compass Datacenters has revealed of all its facilities will be built with CarbonCure concrete.
The innovative environmental material, developed by fellow Canadian outfit CarbonCure Technologies, is made by injecting re-captured CO2 into the concrete manufacturing process.
According to the CarbonCure, the procedure dramatically reduces the amount of cement required to mix the concrete, which is important as cement production accounts for 7 percent of global CO2 generated. On top of that, it's a pretty handy way of removing CO2 from the atmosphere.
