Building (with) sustainability
Between 2016 and 2018, Holcim Switzerland delivered 6,500 tons of cement to build the Kunsthaus extension. About 5,000 tons were made of our sustainable cement Modero 3B. Not only does this cement contain a low portion of clinker, which is responsible for most CO2 emissions associated with cement, but it also makes concrete surfaces brighter, well matching the project’s aesthetic requirements. What is more, Modero 3B works very well in the production of recycled concrete, which accounts for 95 of the overall concrete used for Zurich Kunsthaus.
