MBI launched the sustainable concrete ECOFORTO.

This stone with 30% less cement, 30% recycled materials and reduces 35% CO2.

The base of this concrete block ECOFORTE is the strong durable coating from titanium dioxide.

The titanium dioxide coating guarantees not only a long life. If used on stones as the Clairplus, stones are also capable of infiltrating water and purifying the air. Because of this strong top layer the concrete blocks can be manufactured with minimal cement and primary materials and still can meet all strength requirements.

30 percent of the gravel is replaced by secondary raw materials from recycled and purified bottom ash of waste incinerators.

Recycle

Furthermore, MBI replace 30 percent of its primary raw materials like sand and gravel by secondary raw materials from recycled and purified bottom ash of waste incinerators.

By using Rebeas sand and gravel from old railways, ballast gets a second life in the concrete. Also MBI plants recycle all their own debris in their concrete.

Revolutionary

Revolutionary is the use of the alternative Mecalithe excipient. With Mecalithe the concrete uses 30 percent less cement in his ECOFORTO concrete blocks. Since the cement industry is responsible for 5 percent of all CO2 emissions in the world, this leads to a substantial reduction of the CO2 footprint.
