What impact has Cleancrete had on the construction sector?
As countries face mounting pressure to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, the need for new solutions becomes increasingly critical, and Cleancrete’s clear environmental benefits shine in this context.
Its striking resemblance to the traditional concrete mixing process also allows for easy integration into existing infrastructure. Notably, the team has successfully produced a batch of Cleancrete at an industrial concrete factory in Switzerland without requiring any adjustments to machinery or procedures.
This is significant because it minimizes the investment necessary for large-scale implementation, thereby replacing a portion of the carbon-intensive concrete market.
In Zurich, a new apartment block is presently testing Cleancrete. This material offers suitable strength while providing essential thermal properties to reduce heating requirements during a Swiss winter.
Assuming successful trials, there’s no reason to believe Swiss regulators would reject this material, and once approved, it would set a favourable precedent for adoption in other countries, particularly given the stringent nature of Swiss regulations.
Additionally, the “Made in Switzerland” or “Trialled and Tested in Switzerland” label carries strong credibility.
