Lafarge General Use Concrete
Lafarge’s general use concrete line uses by-products from other manufacturing industry such as fly ash and slag, at a 30% cement replacement. This reduces the overall environmental impact of these industry waste by-products and reduces the overall carbon footprint of the concrete.
Lafarge utilizes Portland Limestone Cement, which results in a 10% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions as compared to regular portland general use cement. To minimize our impact on water resources, Lafarge reduces the amount of fresh water consumption by incorporating a percentage of reclaimed water to the concrete. Regular quality control testing ensures there is no impact to the concretes fresh and hardened properties.
