CEMEX have announced that it has supplied 37 000 t of cement for the construction of the Pelješac Bridge, one of the most significant infrastructure projects in Croatia in the past three decades. Nearly all the cement used in the project belonged to CEMEX’s Vertua family of lower carbon products.
The Pelješac Bridge spans a total of 2.4 km, and is an integral part of Croatia's transport system, connecting the southern region of Croatia with the rest of the country. For decades, crossing between Croatia’s territories by land required crossing its border with Bosnia and Herzegovina.
“CEMEX has been a proud contributor to the development of Croatia, and we are very pleased to participate in one of the largest infrastructure projects in the region,” said Sergio Menendez, President of CEMEX Europe, Middle East, Africa & Asia. "Our Vertua products are designed to meet society’s demand for resilient and long-lasting buildings and infrastructure built with a lower carbon footprint.”
Vertua products have a CO2 reduction of at least 25% versus traditional cements. For concrete, the CO2 reduction ranges from 30% up to a full net zero option.
Vertua cement and concrete play an important role in the transition of the built environment to a net zero world, meeting customer needs through lower-carbon products without compromising performance. The development and customer acceptance of Vertua lower carbon products serves as an important milestone in CEMEX´s journey to become a net zero CO2 company.
