EP Henry, Lafarge, Solidia mark low-carbon binder’s commercial launch

IMAGE

A venture between the LafargeHolcim U.S. Cement business and Solidia Technologies will supply EP Henry’s Wrightstown, N.J., block & paver plant with a reduced carbon dioxide binder plus companion curing equipment. The proprietary production method’s formal launch stems from a six-year effort by the three companies to bring to commercial scale a technology that reduces embodied CO2 in manufactured concrete by up to 70 percent versus conventional, portland cement-based production methods. Development has centered on Solidia Cement milled at the Lafarge Whitehall plant in western Pennsylvania, along with aggregate materials Solidia Technologies sources separately.
