Cemfree has been recognised for its environmental credentials, receiving the Skanska UK Award for Supply Chain Green Solutions. The award was open to both current and prospective members of Skanska’s supply chain, including suppliers, subcontractors and designers.
Cemfree is a structural concrete that activates 95% GGBS to offer an alternative to traditional OPC use. It was developed by the David Ball Group PLC, a research-led company based in Cambridge, UK. According to the company, if Cemfree were to be used at capacity in the UK then it could provide a CO2 saving of 2.1 million tpa.
Chris Howard, CEO of the David Ball Group, collected the award at Skanska’s annual management conference.
“We’re delighted that Cemfree has been recognised by Skanska and are honoured to receive this prestigious award,” said Chris. “Cemfree is a game changer for the construction industry by providing an innovative and viable solution to reducing the carbon legacy of concrete. The product offers construction companies, developers and contractors the scope to reduce the carbon footprint of their developments, meeting industry sustainability and energy efficiency targets.”
