From 2021 and for the coming three years, Hoffmann Green will supply Eiffage Génie Civil with its clinker-free low-carbon cement resulting from H-UKR technology for the construction of civil engineering infrastructures such as water towers, water retention basins, storage silos and civil engineering structures. This order commitment, covering a total volume of approximately 50 000 m3, crystalises both players’ desire to innovate, and their environmental commitments in order to contribute to reducing the construction sector’s carbon impact.
Julien Blanchard and David Hoffmann, co-founders of Hoffmann Green Cement Technologies, say: “This multi-year commitment is extremely positive and tangible, as it means that – starting next year – civil engineering infrastructure elements will be built by Eiffage Génie Civil, throughout France, using concrete that has a substantially lower carbon footprint thanks to our cement. Our company’s entrance onto this new infrastructure market is a decisive milestone in Hoffmann Green’s commercial development, and yet again demonstrates the competitiveness of our products. Furthermore, we are delighted to be able to collaborate with a group such as Eiffage with whom we share a common vision: to build tomorrow’s infrastructures in a more environmentally responsible way.”
Simon Chamoret, Operational Director of Eiffage Génie Civil in charge of regional activities, specifies: “Eiffage is recognised for its focus on sustainable development. In particular, we are committed to a low-carbon approach to reducing our greenhouse gas emissions, both in terms of our own emissions and those related to our activities. The partnership with Hoffmann Green is part of this eco-responsible approach since concrete made from cement with a low carbon footprint is a differentiating element in the development of our projects. It will thus enable us to enhance our continuous improvement approach regarding the sustainability of our civil engineering infrastructures”.
Eiffage has been working closely with Hoffmann Green for several years now to integrate its cements into construction projects. Using prefabricated elements, Hoffmann Green's low-impact cements will be used in two projects carried out by Eiffage Construction in inner Paris: Ateliers Gaité de Montparnasse and the L1VE tertiary complex on Avenue de la Grande Armée.
