Sustainable cement grant

Sustainable cement grant

A manufacturing facility which produces low carbon cement products has secured a £500,000 award from Zero Waste Scotland’s Circular Economy Investment Fund

A new cement manufacturing site is being launched by Innovative Ash Solutions (IAS), after receiving a £500,000 grant.

This funding will support the development of a facility capable of processing up to 20,000 tonnes of incineration fly, cyclone and boiler ash, into a sustainable form of pulverised fuel ash (PFA), a key ingredient used in cement.

Cement, a key ingredient in concrete, has a massive carbon footprint and is the source of about 8% of the world's carbon dioxide emissions - more than aviation fuel (2.5%).

This facility is a joint venture between Levenseat Limited, a leading player in the Scottish waste and resource management sector and Organic Innovative Solutions Limited.

IAS’ patented process diverts waste materials from landfill and avoids the use of virgin sand. This creates cheaper cement, which will reduce the environmental impact of concrete production.

The production facility, which will be located on Levenseat’s site in South Lanarkshire, is due to be commissioned by the end of 2022, but it has already received applications of interest.
