Holcim Romania has opened its 10th environmentally friendly concrete plant, located in the western city of Timisoara following an investment of EUR1.5m.

The new plant has a production capacity of 120m3 per hour and is fully automated.  The plant in Timisoara uses technology which reduces to almost zero all air emissions and noise, Holcim Romania’s general director, Markus Wirth, said. 

The Timisoara plant is also equipped with an air and water heating system which enables operations all year around. The company will open another environmentally friendly concrete plant in the northwestern city of Targu Mures by the end of 2005. 

Holcim Romania has first introduced the concept of environmentally friendly plant in 2001 in the southern city of Pitesti.
