Concrete products are composed of cement, sand, aggregates and water, being 100% recyclable.
Our waste is separated and sent to licensed entities for this purpose, with about 99.9% of waste sent for recycling.
The resource consumption is also a concern. The rejected water, in the production process, is treated and reused internally.
In 2018, we started implementing 1.984 photovoltaic panels in our factory, thus favoring increased consumption of renewable energy.
