With sources close to the worksite and demanding quality control, we produce high quality recycled aggregates from recycled and returned concrete. This commitment to sustainable solutions ensures that reserves are not unnecessarily depleted and reduces the impact on landfill sites. Our recycled aggregates guarantee the highest standard of consistency, reliability and performance.
Recycled aggregates can be used for a wide range of applications in civil engineering and building projects such as:
● road base,
● building foundation material,
● utility trenches, and
● parking areas.
On a global scale, natural alluvial sand is becoming an increasingly depleted resource. LafargeHolcim has a sustainable solution in the form of manufactured sands that are produced at hard rock quarries. The result is a high quality fine aggregate that is an ideal solution for all concrete applications.
Decorative sands and aggregates
Our multicolored decorative sands and aggregates give color to architectural applications and exposed aggregate concrete. Durable and easy to maintain, decorative aggregates can be used for aesthetic appeal in applications such as parks, driveways and playgrounds.
