Hoffmann Green Cement Technologies has announced the signing of a strategic partnership agreement with the Centre Scientifique et Technique du Bâtiment (CSTB, the Scientific and Technical Centre for Building) and is thus strengthening its relations with that organisation, a public industrial and commercial company (EPIC) that undertakes five key activities: research and expertise, assessment, testing, certification and the dissemination of knowledge.
The CSTB’s objective is to imagine the buildings and cities of the future by guiding and securing sustainable construction and renovation projects. Its goal is to improve the quality of life of the people who use them while anticipating the effects of climate change. To achieve this goal, the centre fosters the emergence of innovations and their access to the market by attributing assessments (performance and durability levels) and delivering certifications.
In this respect, the CSTB has been accompanying Hoffmann Green Cement since 2017 by assessing the performance, durability and safety of its low-carbon cements. Hoffmann Green Cement’s strategy in terms of Research and Development is to continually invest in the development of new decarbonised technologies. The signing of this agreement will allow the company to benefit over the long term from optimised lead-times in the processing of its dossiers for the assessment of its current and future technologies.
Julien Blanchard and David Hoffmann, co-founders of Hoffmann Green Cement Technologies, said: “A result of the very close cooperation between our teams and the CSTB teams since 2017 and the mutual trust that has been created, this partnership agreement represents a decisive step for the Company. Indeed, our current clients and the building sector players interested in our technologies are coming to us for a growing number of applications for our low-carbon cements. This deal will enable us to accelerate the assessment of our technologies to provide the best possible response to the current and future challenges facing the construction sector”.
Stéphanie Bondoux, Director of Certification and Accreditation, added: “This partnership agreement further consolidates our relationship with the CSTB and marks our perfect integration within the French building sector’s regulatory and insurance landscape. Furthermore, it will help us meet the growing demand for our effective and sustainable solutions.”
