Hoffmann Green Cement Technologies, a pioneer in low-carbon cement, announces that it has signed a 3-year contract with CEMEX France, a global group in the building materials sector, to supply Hoffmann Green low-carbon and clinker-free cements.
In France, close to 65% of the cement used is for the ready-mix concrete market, the largest end market for cement. Today, CEMEX is one of the leaders in the ready-mix concrete industry in France and has more than 240 production facilities across the country enabling it to benefit from a nationwide coverage and to provide solutions that perfectly match its clients’ requirements.
Over the next three years, for the Ile-de-France and Aquitaine regions, Hoffmann Green will supply CEMEX with the world’s most low-carbon cement resulting from its two technologies H-UKR and H-EVA enabling CO2 emissions to be divided by 5 compared with the use of traditional cement and allowing the construction sector to reduce its carbon footprint.
Julien Blanchard and David Hoffmann, co-founders of Hoffmann Green Cement Technologies, comment: “The signing of this structuring contract with CEMEX France today enables us to achieve another key step in the recognition of our solutions by a global leader in this industry and represents an additional milestone in our development, henceforth opening up the ready-mix concrete market to us. We are very proud to be partnering with CEMEX for the next three years and are delighted that we will ultimately have the capacity to commercialise our cements for the ready-mix concrete market on a nationwide scale”.
Michel André, Western Europe Materials VP for CEMEX, adds: “CEMEX, beyond the progress already achieved, has set itself a clear objective: reduce specific net CO2 emissions by 35% by 2030. Concrete has a key role to play in the transition to a carbon-neutral economy and is an essential element in the development of smart urban projects from a climate perspective thanks, in particular, to sustainable buildings. We are therefore delighted about this collaboration with Hoffmann Green, which provides alternatives that can be used right away. We have to act together to find and offer construction players increasingly innovative and environmentally friendly solutions”.
