CB Green, a division of Groupe CB focused on delivering low carbon and circular economy solutions for the concrete and construction industries, and Ecocem, Europe’s leading independent provider of low carbon cement technologies, today announced a long term cooperation agreement to establish a new joint venture which will support the scale-up of Ecocem’s low carbon ACT technology by 2025, and CB Green’s ambitions to deliver low carbon solutions to the construction industry.
Cemex and Ecocem have a long history of collaboration, with Ecocem supplying Cemex France with raw materials for many years. With this extension of the partnership the two companies will explore opportunities to use lower-carbon cementitious material in concrete production, in line with Cemex’s European aspiration of hitting a 55% reduction in CO2 emissions in its operations by 2030.
POINT.P, part of Saint-Gobain Building Distribution France, and Ecocem, Europe’s leading independent provider of low carbon cement technologies have reinforced their long history of commercial collaboration with this partnership announcement to develop and market low-carbon solutions for binders, concretes and mortars. This partnership will support POINT.P’s ambition to meet its target of reducing cement-related carbon emissions (ready-mix concrete, concrete blocks and prefabricated elements) by 35% by 2030. For Ecocem, it will be an opportunity to develop and market its newest low-carbon binders through POINT.P’s distribution network, concrete plants and precast plants.
