Buzzi Unicem has acquired 50 per cent of Ecotrade SpA, a company with approximately 30 years of experience in the supply and recycling of industrial waste and byproducts for cement production.

Ecotrade has been handling contracts to supply coal ash from power plants and blastfurnace slag from steel mills around the world for decades, supplying them to cement plants across several continents. Deliveries of these byproducts have reached peaks of over 2Mta, Buzzi said in a statement.

Ecotrade is a member of the Italian Register of Environmental Operators and it has a national distribution network in Italy. Buzzi Unicem intends to use Ecotrade’s expertise to expand its operations internally.
