09 August 2019

LafargeHolcim and US-based Solidia Technologies® have announced its first commercial venture to supply EP Henry’s paver and block plant in Wrightstown, New Jersey, with a reduced-CO2 cement.

Over the past six years, the two companies have developed an innovative technology that will reduce the environmental footprint of precast concrete and validate Solidia Cement™ at a commercial scale, according to a press release.

Based on Solidia Cement produced at the Lafarge Whitehall plant, the two companies developed a concrete that is higher performing than traditional versions. The first commercial products were launched earlier this year.

"LafargeHolcim has long been committed to bringing innovative solutions to market, and this commercial agreement with EP Henry is an important step in showing that reducing our CO2 footprint through carbon-captured products is feasible," said Jamie Gentoso, CEO of US Cement, LafargeHolcim. "It has been incredibly rewarding to see how together, we have collaborated to move this technology from the experimental phase and into the US market as a viable product."
