HR Cement will launch a new lowembodied carbon cement called Ecocem in mid 2019.
Eco-cem is a pozzolanic cement. Pozzolanic cements are very common and well proven globally but until now have not been easily and cost effectively available in NZ. Eco-cem reduces embodied carbon by 25-30%, and in addition makes a concrete that is much more durable, and all at a very similar price to normal cement.
Pozzolans are a type of mineral that contain very high percentages of silica and are either Artificial (eg flyash or slag), or Natural. New Zealand is blessed with billions of tonnes of Natural pozzolans in the form of volcanic ash in the Central plateau from the Taupo eruptions. At their milling facility in Mount Maunganui, HR Cement process these Natural pozzolan together with high quality imported raw materials to make Eco-cem.
Eco-cem is a genuine game-changer for the construction industry.
