For the new Milan M4 metro line, Holcim supplied concrete made with low-carbon pozzolanic cement and half a million tons of excavation materials sourced onsite from the same project
BUILD A CIRCULAR CITY
We expect 70% of the world population to be living in cities by 2050, adding 2.5 billion people - this rapid urbanization means cities can make a real difference in decarbonizing the built environment.
Circular cities are the cities of the future, and with Holcim products we can build them today.
With our proprietary ECOCycle® circular technology platform, we are driving circular construction at scale. Holcim’s solutions with ECOCycle® recycled CDM inside include cement, concrete and aggregates.
3D printing construction with our proprietary ink TectorPrint can reduce material use by up to 50%. TectorPrint can be used to build structures held together solely through compression with no binders or reinforcements, making the material easily recyclable.
With high strength and superior rigidity, DYNAMax ultimate performance concrete enables thinner and longer structures to optimize material use. Its durability also minimizes maintenance and lifecycle costs of a building.
Our Airium™ mineral insulating foam reduces heating and cooling energy needs, avoiding the equivalent of 18 kg of CO2 per m² annually for individual housing. It can fill any type of shape or cavity in order to maximize energy efficiency in a building, and it is fully recyclable.
ISOGARD is Elevate's next-generation polyiso formulation and is the elite choice for cold-temperature insulation. It provides the highest thermal resistance per inch with up to 40% better thermal performance in cold temperatures than the competition.
Driven by our purpose to build progress for people and the planet, Holcim is on a mission to decarbonize building.
