16 Sep Commercial launch of H-IONA, the European market’s most decarbonized cement HomeNewsCommercial launch of H-IONA, the European market’s most decarbonized cement Hoffmann Green Cement Technologies today announces the launch of H-IONA, its fourth low-carbon technology. The manufacturing of this new cement is incorporated within the existing production unit and emits six times less CO2 than traditional Portland cement, with a carbon footprint of less than 150 kilograms per metric ton. Continuing on from the technologies already perfected by the Company, and notably H-UKR, Hoffmann Green Cement has developed an innovative specific activation system enabling it to produce this heating-free technology at its fully automated 4.0 industrial site, while preserving natural resources by recycling co-products produced by industry. This cement primarily consists of ground furnace slag and calcium sulfate. H-IONA is the first low-carbon cement to be granted CE marking. Technically, this fourth technology meets all the mechanical, physical, chemical and durability requirements of the NF EN 15743 standard of June 2015. Marketed in bulk in 1-ton big bags, H-IONA is also the first Hoffmann Green cement accessible to the general public, as it will be available in 25 kg bags in specialized retail chains aimed at construction professionals and at individuals. This new cement further enhances the product range developed by Hoffmann Green Cement and allows it to address new markets in perfect complementarity with those already targeted by its other three technologies (H-UKR, H-P2A and H-EVA). H-IONA addresses a large number of applications in construction, including reinforced or non-reinforced concrete, industrial buildings, apartments and individual homes, civil engineering and large-volume projects, agricultural concrete, concrete for water treatment plants and light prefabrication. >> Full press release to be found here.
