Through its parent company LafargeHolcim, Bamburi Cement has launched “Houses of Tomorrow’ (HoT), an innovative and green construction project that seeks to fulfil the company’s sustainable construction agenda through low-carbon based building solutions.
HoT encompasses the selection, design and use of materials that leverage low carbon standards in the overall construction, and application of near-zero embodied energy concrete designed by incorporating low carbon content cement.
According to the company, a mix of Bamburi Cement’s products, Powermax and Nguvu pozzolanic cement will be used for concrete works, alongside Fundi masonry cement, a low carbon cement that will also be used for mortar and plaster works.
The project is ongoing in several countries on each continent.
In our ambition to become a net-zero company, we are part of the solution and seek to support our customers in their CO2-reduction ambitions. The launch of the ‘Houses of Tomorrow’ Project in Kenya thus demonstrates our continuous innovative solutions aimed at reducing the carbon emissions across the entirety of our operations and supply chain.Bamburi Cement Group Managing Director, Seddiq Hassani
Currently, the cement manufacturer has the greenest cement with the lowest CO2 emission level in the market. These are the Duracem and Fundi cement, which limit the carbon emission by between 50 and 65% as compared to commonly used Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) products.
