Holcim launches environment-friendly cement in Davao

Holcim Philippines, Inc., one of the country’s major building solutions provider, has launched its environment-friendly blended cement product Holcim ECOPlanet – in Davao to provide partners a sustainable and high-performance building material as they continue advancing development in Mindanao.

Holcim Philippines President and CEO Horia Adrian said “The launch of ECOPlanet is further proof of our commitment to continue supporting the sustainable development of Davao and Mindanao. ECOPlanet provides our partner the best material for building durable and lasting infrastructure to support population growth and development while being more respectful of the environment.”

The ECOPlanet product was launched to a number of its ready-mix concrete and contractor partners in South Mindanao as part of the company’s overall sustainability thrust.

The company also introduced its Balik-Plastic waste management program wherein partners may turn over plastic bags for cement to the company to be reused by recycling partners or converted to alternative fuels and raw materials in making cement through co-processing at its Davao plant.

ECOPlanet is a global range of green cement developed by international building solutions company Holcim Group.

It was introduced in the Philippines last November as a general purpose cement with at least 30 percent lower carbon footprint than normal cement. Being a blended cement, ECOPlanet is also made with less virgin raw materials and delivers superior durability and strength for structural applications.

The availability of ECOPlanet further expands Holcim Philippines’ range of building solutions in the region. In the company’s several decades of operations in Davao, the company has proudly supplied cement to a number important of infrastructure that support progress and uplift people’s lives such as the Davao International Airport, Davao Coastal Road, Davao Bypass Road, and the Tagum City Flyover.

Holcim has cement manufacturing facilities in La Union, Bulacan, Batangas, Misamis Oriental and Davao, as well as aggregates and dry mix business and technical support facilities for building solutions.
