Ecocem Ireland has launched its eco-friendly general purpose cement in new 25 kg bags. The bags mean that the cement is available for consumers via local builder’s merchants and suppliers. The cement has previously been used in large scale construction projects such as the Giant’s Causeway Interpretive Centre and the Waterford Cable Stayed Bridge.
The eco-friendly cement reduces CO2 emissions by 50%, as well as providing enhanced strength and durability.
Following the inauguration of Ecocem’s new bagging plant at Dublin Port, the company announced a 3-year €19 million investment plan. The new bagging plant will generate 25 direct and 36 indirect jobs. Ecocem also plans to expand its export reach for bulk, bagged and special products in Scandinavia, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France and the UK.
“Until now, the benefits of using Ecocem have been reserved to large scale projects such as the AVIVA stadium. As of today, the benefits are available to everyone in Ireland. The Irish builder now has exclusive access to the best available technology in cement bags,” said Conor O’Riain, Head of New Markets and Products at Ecocem Materials.
