ACC launches green concrete
ACC Ready Mix Concrete, producers of cement and ready mixed concrete, introduce a new low carbon range of concrete, ECOPact—the green concrete. The product, launched in Mumbai and Hyderabad, will be rolled out across India in a phased manner in the next few weeks.
According to ACC, ECOPact is a concrete with 30-50% lower embodied carbon content compared to a reference concrete designed with ordinary portland cement (OPC). The product range uses CO2 reduced binders and is manufactured with mix designs to reduce its carbon footprint. The sustainable product range is said to be suitable for all structural components: from foundations to roof—including elements like columns, beams, slabs, external or internal walls, driveways, walkways and more.
ACC’s ECOPact range of products offers customers the option to choose concrete based on their desired level of CO2 reduction and sustainability objectives.
- ECOPact Prime offers CO2 reduction by 50-70%.
- ECOPact Max has a CO2 reduction capability greater than 70%.
- ECOPact Zero is a combination of concrete technology and climate action that offers the opportunity to eliminate the carbon footprint of concrete and reduce the overall carbon footprint of the structures.
Using ECOPact range by developers will also help them obtain green points from Indian Green Building Council (IGBC).
ACC Limited, a member of the LafargeHolcim Group, are producers of cement and ready mixed concrete.
