New partnership between Lafarge and Solidia Technologies

Lafarge has signed a partnership agreement with the Solidia Technologies®, Piscataway/USA, to industrialize an innovative technology that could reduce the environmental footprint of precast concrete. The technology allows lower CO2 emissions in the cement production process, and involves the capture of CO2 in precast concrete manufacturing. Overall, CO2 emissions could be reduced by up to 70 %. As part of the agreement, ­Lafarge will develop the industrial production with Solidia to mid 2014. The two companies will collaborate to market this technology as a new solution for the pre-cast sector.
