Cementbouw has succeeded in replacing the cement in concrete road pavements using SQAPE geopolymer technology. The municipality of Zeewolde is the first to apply RAMAC, Cementbouw's new geopolymer line, in the renovation of the bicycle path on the Gelderseweg.
It was the desire to create sustainable products that stimulated Cementbouw to undertake this product development and innovation. As one of the leading organisations in the sector, Cementbouw sees it as its responsibility to provide sustainable solutions in light of climate change.
André Barendregt, director of Cementbouw Betonmortel: "In Zeewolde we have now produced a road pavement with RAMAC, where we have replaced the cement for 100%. The result is a sustainable bicycle path with an extremely lowCO2 footprint. With our new product, we can make a major contribution to the sustainability goals of our clients."
By using RAMAC as road surfacing, aCO2 reduction of over 65% has been achieved. The innovation in Zeewolde has been nominated for the InfraTech Innovation Award 2017. Concrete producers who would like to become acquainted with the possibilities of the SQAPE technology, in a technical and/or commercial sense, can contact us.
2RAMAC is the brand name under which SQAPE itself markets products bound with SQAPE polymers.
