The optimised cement and aggregates supply chain and the investment in the new facility reflect TITAN's commitment to sustainable construction practices. They will play a pivotal role in supporting its customers in realising one of Europe's most iconic infrastructure projects.

As a key contributor to The Ellinikon, TITAN Group delivers on-site innovative, low-carbon products, tailored solutions, and expert advice on using innovative materials and circular solutions. One notable aspect of TITAN's contribution to the project footprint is its commitment to a sustainable supply chain. The company aims to increase the use of recycled materials and sourcing aggregates from nearby quarries, reducing transportation distances and minimising the environmental impact associated with long-haul deliveries. This emphasis on a local and sustainable supply chain enhances the project's overall sustainability goals.

The Ellinikon in Athens, Greece, represents a groundbreaking urban and coastal redevelopment effort, the largest in Europe, led by LAMDA Development. Spanning an impressive six million m2, the project repurposes a disused airport into a new city, creating an international multifaceted hub that revamps the coastline and builds modern infrastructure, new residential units, and hospitality developments.

The new city at Ellinikon introduces the region's first skyscraper, the Mediterranean's tallest 'green' seaside skyscraper, and other landmarks of superior aesthetics designed by renowned Greek and international architectural firms. At the heart of this iconic urban regeneration project lies the 2 million square meters Metropolitan Park, a world-class green oasis within The Ellinikon development, contributing to a reduced CO2 footprint for the wider area. Beyond its physical magnitude, The Ellinikon is set to have a significant economic and social impact. It has the potential to revitalise the city, attract investment, generate employment opportunities and new jobs, enhance the city's global reputation, and improve the quality of life for residents and visitors.

Angelos Kalogerakos, general manager of TITAN'S Greece business, said: "We have invested fast and early to accompany this large city infrastructure project. I am certain our partners will be delighted with the outstanding concrete solutions delivered by our Group specialists thanks to this digital, state-of-the-art unit and our portfolio of green and value-added products. We take pride in contributing to the transformation of The Ellinikon as this iconic project is reshaping the coastline."

Equipped with advanced automation and cutting-edge technology, TITAN Group's newly established operation sets new standards for environmental responsibility and multi-material management. The unit adheres to circular economy principles, maximising the recycling of concrete and demolition materials, incorporating a fresh concrete recycling system and a treated water reuse mechanism. These practices ensure the production of innovative concrete products required during the construction period.
