Lafarge is Sustain-Able at Ecobuild
Published: 22 December 2009

Lafarge has announced that it will exhibit at Ecobuild 2010 – the world’s biggest event dedicated to sustainable design, construction and the built environment.

As well as showcasing its latest innovations in sustainable building products, Lafarge will use the exhibition as a platform for its new ‘Sustain-Able’ campaign, empowering the industry to improve its environmental performance by selecting building materials that demonstrate strong sustainability credentials.

Lafarge will showcase its pioneering sustainable bulk cement, PhoenixTM, and packed cements alongside its range of innovative sustainable readymix concretes, including self-compacting AgiliaTM, low-shrink ExtensiaTM rapid-setting ChronoliaTM and Sustainable Asphalt EnvirophaltTM from 2-4 March 2010 at Earls Court, London.  All of these are unique to the Lafarge portfolio.
 
As part of the Sustain-Able campaign Lafarge is championing the use of waste by-products from other industries both as fuels and as components of the finished cement.  An example of this is the use of fly-ash in Phoenix, which is the principal sustainable cement in Lafarge bulk portfolio and offers end-users a material which has a lower embodied CO2 value than standard Portland cement. Additionally, visitors to Ecobuild can talk to experts about Lafarge’s range of specialist packed products including Postcrete, Quality Assured Mortar Mix and Extra-Rapid, which have been developed with a focus on reduced waste and hence eco-efficiency.
