LafargeHolcim and Solidia announce US commercial expansion

LafargeHolcim is working with US start-up Solidia Technologies to supply EP Henry’s Wrightstown, New Jersey paver and block plant with a reduced carbon dioxide (CO2) cement.

Jamie Gentoso, CEO, US Cement, LafargeHolcim, says the agreement is an “important step in showing that reducing our CO2footprint through carbon captured products is feasible.”

Over the past six years, the partners have developed technology which is expected to reduce the environmental footprint of pre-cast concrete and validate Solidia Cement at a commercial scale.

In 2013, the companies launched a pilot program to develop low-carbon pre-cast concrete pavers with EP Henry, a national outdoor unit concrete products manufacturer. The first commercial offerings were launched earlier this year, demonstrating improved aesthetics and product durability.

Tom Schuler, Solidia CEO, says: “By offering their technical expertise and market intelligence, LafargeHolcim helped us eliminate barriers to adoption, leading us to this first commercial traction in the US.”
