Ireland’s independent Ecocem, announced today that the use of its GGBS product will lead to a reduction in CO2 emissions well in excess of 150,000t during 2005. The Irish company which operates a €10m manufacturing facility in Dublin Port said today that it is now on a high growth curve with sales of GGBS cement expected to at least quadruple 2004 volumes. Ecocem said use of Ground Granulated Blastfurnace Slag (GGBS) cement will also result in cost savings of several million euro per annum when the Emissions Trading Scheme comes into fiscal effect in 2008.
