Our new advanced crushing system in France is a game-changer in circular construction. With this proprietary processing technology, Holcim can upcycle 100% of construction demolition materials (CDM) into new building solutions, from aggregates and sand to decarbonized cement paste. With this advanced circular system we aim to scale up our ECOCyle solutions, to lower the CO2 footprint of new building solutions while closing the material loop to save virgin resources.
Concrete is the most widely used construction material in the world thanks to its durability, affordability, versatility and strength. With today’s growing population and rapid urbanization, we need to build better with less to improve living standards for all, while minimizing construction’s environmental footprint. That’s why at Holcim we are putting our innovation to work to scale up "low-carbon, circular and smart" concrete applications to decarbonize construction.
