21 Jul Signature contract with Alegina HomeNewsSignature contract with Alegina Hoffmann Green Cement Technologies announces the signing of a 3-year contract for the development and marketing of its low-carbon cement with Alegina, a Vendée-based company that specializes in designing and manufacturing innovative materials and products from oyster shells and other seashells. This commercial partnership with a minimum volume commitment concerns the production of draining slabs and paving stones made with Hoffmann Green cement and aggregate from Alegina’s crushed oyster shells, particularly suited to the requirements of the battle against the artificialization of the ground, the drainage of rainwater and the revegetation of urban developments. These innovative realizations made from bio-sourced ecological products will be used for urban development projects that aim to build tomorrow’s eco-responsible towns and cities. Julien Blanchard and David Hoffmann, co-founders of Hoffmann Green Cement Technologies, say: “Blending urbanization and environmental responsibility is the ethos we share with Alegina. We are thus very proud to sign this partnership agreement with a fellow Vendée-based company that specializes in upcycling oyster shells, natural waste of which there is a substantial quantity on the Atlantic coastline. This new contract further strengthens our presence on the precast market and enables our technologies to be combined with other disruptive and innovative solutions with the common goal of decarbonizing the construction sector by implementing a true circular economy”. Philippe Gaboriau, President of Alegina, adds: “Combining our solution with Hoffmann Green cement, whose environmental performance and added value have already been demonstrated, represents a real opportunity for us to accelerate our young company’s development. This partnership substantiates the dynamism of the Vendée ecosystem in the application of more responsible alternative solutions for tomorrow’s constructions”. >> Full press release to be found here.
