Hoffmann Green Cement Technologies, a pioneer in low-carbon cement, has announced the signing of an exclusive 5-year contract for the development and commercialisation of its low-carbon cement with KP1, the French leader in prefabricated building systems.

This partnership follows the success of the initial work undertaken in laboratories since the end of 2019. It demonstrates the innovative spirit of these two companies, contributing to transforming the eco-friendly, high-performance buildings of tomorrow, as well as enhancing their commitment to the environment.

According to Julien Blanchard and David Hoffmann, co-founders of Hoffmann Green Cement Technologies, “This contract with KP1 validates the relevance and success of the collaborative project undertaken last year. The commitment over several years is extremely tangible, and means that construction components, with concrete having a significantly reduced carbon footprint thanks to our cements, will soon be used by KP1. In light of the situation over the last few months, particularly in the construction sector, we would like to applaud the determination and perseverance of our two organisations, who have managed to stay on track with the implementation schedule. We are delighted to count a group like KP1 among our partners, and together, we plan to construct the buildings and cities of tomorrow, by adopting a different approach”.

Bruno Roqueplo, CEO of KP1, comments: “The prefabricated products we could supply to companies all follow the same rationale: provide compliant and efficient solutions to their construction needs. The French RT 2012 standard, following the E+C- trials, will progress towards an environmental standard (RE2020), and we want KP1 to be a recognised player in this domain. This partnership with Hoffmann Green should eventually enable us to provide building companies with low-carbon prefabricated systems with unseen environmental performances to date, while retaining tried-and-tested technical products”.
