Hoffmann Green’s purpose is to act on the climate and the environment in a different way and right now, by designing and producing decarbonated cements 0% clinker. Thanks to our innovative technological solutions, construction players will be able to significantly reduce their carbon footprint with eco-friendly concrete to create the sustainable cities of tomorrow.
The manufacturing process of Hoffmann cements promotes the circular economy by using local resources and co-products from the industry, thus preserving natural resources.
The industrial project that we are carrying out is renewing with a “new generation” entrepreneurial dynamism, integrating the environmental, social and societal impact of its activities, in order to prepare a better and more sustainable future for future generations.
With our four technologies designed to produce decarbonated 0% clinker cements for all construction markets, we aim to initiate a real paradigm shift in the construction sector and prepare a better future for generations to come. To this end, the first stage of our industrial deployment consists of the construction of two new production sites, to be commissioned respectively in the second half of 2022 (site H2 in Vendée) and in the second half of 2024 (site H3 at the Grand Port Maritime de Dunkerque).
This location fits perfectly into the Company’s strategic plan as it is located near a rail and river junction and offers a new maritime access that will connect with the storage silos located in the port of La Rochelle. Built entirely from Hoffmann’s clinker-free decarbonated cements, H3 will be a copy of the H2 site in Vendée and will therefore have a production capacity of 250,000 tons per year. Since July 2022, Hoffmann Green has gained independence in the grinding of its raw materials by internalizing the processing of slag through the acquisition of the ABC Grinding Group. This will allow the company to expand its sourcing capacity and secure its margins in an inflationary context.
By 2024, Hoffmann Green is targeting a 3% market share in France thanks to its three production sites, each offering maritime and/or land access facilitating the reception of raw materials and the shipment of Hoffmann cements.
With this development necessarily comes the question of our impact. Our environmental impact, of course, but above all our societal impact. Being a company with an impact requires a clear perspective on its activity, on its model…
One of our challenges was to show that our cements can replace traditional cement in a large number of applications. We are now bringing this proof with sails, foundations for solar trackers, pre-walls, slabs…
We are succeeding in this challenge: Hoffmann cements are capable of substituting in all types of operations.
