What is fully recycled concrete?
Drawing on its formulation expertise, Holcim’s Innovation Center developed the world’s first fully recycled concrete for this project: a concrete in which all components—cement, aggregates and water—are made of recycled materials.
This unique recycled concrete was produced using ECOCycle®, Holcim’s proprietary circular technology platform to recycle construction and demolition waste (CDW) into new building solutions. Amid rising population growth and urbanization, circular solutions are essential for keeping materials in use to stay within our planet's boundaries while we improve living standards for all.
Overall, the Recygénie concrete with ECOCycle saved more than 6,000 tons of natural resources.
