Molins launches Susterra range of products
06 June 2024

Molins introduces Susterra, a new range that groups together the company's products with sustainable attributes. This new product range will help Molins to achieve its goals and enable its entire value chain to meet their sustainability objectives. 

Susterra groups the company's solutions that promote the circular economy by offering a second life to materials, using alternative fuels, and incorporating recycled materials in their manufacturing. It focusses on reducing CO2 emissions by prioritising energy efficiency and the use of renewable electricity. Additionally, it fosters safe working environments by promoting solutions that minimise emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), thereby improving health and safety in the workplace. 

Susterra solutions include cements with CO2 emission reductions of over 20 per cent compared to the CEM I type manufactured in 2020, as well as concretes with emission reductions of over 25 per cent compared to cement-based products made with the same cement. Susterra also encompasses mortars and pavements with more than 2.5 per cent recycled raw materials, materials and fuels made from 100 per cent recycled sources such as rubber granules or steel aggregates, urban furniture containing eight per cent recycled aggregates, and cement-based products certified with the EMICODE EC1 PLUS label for very low VOC emissions.

According to Carlos Martínez, chief strategy and sustainability officer of Molins, “By providing Susterra solutions, Molins helps reduce the carbon footprint of our clients. We will continue to work on improving and expanding the Susterra range, thereby contributing more and more to the decarbonisation and circularity of the entire sector.” 

With Susterra, Molins materialises its commitment to circularity in industrial processes, using up to 55 per cent of thermal energy from alternative sources to fossil fuels. This is achieved through the energy recovery of solid recovered fuels (SRF) and end-of-life tyres (ELT). Additionally, the focus on circularity allows for reduced use of natural raw materials by incorporating materials from the recovery of construction and demolition waste, as well as steel aggregates and rubber granules, into the manufacturing processes.
