There are now 15 nations where ECOPlanet will be available in 2021, with the goal of increasing its market presence by the end of 2022 to enable large-scale low-carbon construction.

What does ECOPlanet have to offer?

  • ECOPlanet cement has a lower carbon footprint by at least 30% without sacrificing performance, thanks to Holcim’s industry-leading formulation knowledge.

Its smaller carbon footprint is further boosted by decarbonizing its manufacturing process, which is aided by the use of alternative fuels. 

 

  • This cement is the world’s first to contain 20 percent recycled construction and demolition debris, which drives the company’s sustainability profile.

 

  • Industry’s widest range of industrial applications, from the construction of homes to large-scale infrastructure.
