Lafarge Canada Inc. has introduced a new cement-treated aggregate that offers a sustainable alternative to traditional base methods used for interlock paving installation and temporary road construction. The product, called STABILIA, will be available in the Eastern Canada marketplace, including Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
STABILIA combines the high-strength characteristics of a concrete base with the permeability of a granular base, making it suitable for a wide variety of projects.
This product launch comes hot on the heals of news that ContempraTM, a low carbon cement produced by Lafarge and Lehigh Hanson, makes up almost 50% of domestic cement consumption in British Columbia just two years after it was introduced, cutting greenhouse gas emissions by 23 000 tpa.
"With STABILIA, Lafarge is truly delivering on our mission of helping build better cities and communities, where we live, work and raise our families, with solutions and systems that contribute to stronger, long-lasting buildings and infrastructure, while addressing environmental concerns,” said Dale Holingswoth, Vice President: Central (GTA) Aggregates, Lafarge Canada Inc. (Eastern Canada).
