Companies join forces to develop new range of innovative low-carbon concrete products
SIGMAROC plc have entered a strategic partnership with Material Evolution (Mevo), an advanced materials company producing low-carbon cement from industrial waste streams, to develop a range of low-carbon concrete products.
Mevo have developed a process that produces an emission-free substitute for ready-mixed and precast concrete. The innovative manufacturing process effectively addresses the problem of high CO2 emissions from conventional cement production by producing cement at ambient temperatures using various waste materials and feedstocks, thereby eliminating the reliance on fossil fuels.
Product development trials have commenced at CCP, SigmaRoc’s precast concrete manufacturer.
Fons Vermorken, SigmaRoc’s chief information officer, commented: ‘Our partnership with Mevo marks a significant step towards an emissions-free solution for ready-mixed and precast concrete. Through our trials at CCP, we are confident that these innovative products will not only meet market demand, but also pave the way to transforming the cement industry and driving sustainable innovation.’
