The contract between the French companies is for an initial period of two years and will cover the development of an EDYCEM concrete using Hoffmann low carbon cement.
The two Vendée-based players says their partnership is aimed at developing new products to combat climate change and comply with the ambitions of future environmental regulations, such as the French RE2020 regulation due to come into force in Summer 2021. They add that their alliance will contribute to the development of more responsible products for the construction industry.
Julien Blanchard and David Hoffmann, co-founders of Hoffmann Green Cement Technologies, commented: “This contract again illustrates the competitiveness of our products for manufacturing low-carbon concrete. This is the first step in the collaboration process we will undertake with the Herige Group to construct environmentally responsible and sustainable buildings."
Benoît Hennaut, chairman of the executive board of the Herige Group, added: “Herige and its subsidiary EDYCEM are historically established in the heart of the territories, with a network of proximity anchored in the Great West of France. More than ever, their ambition is to actively participate in the evolution of the construction sector, by bringing concrete and sustainable answers to professionals in order to reduce CO2 emissions."
