Environmental Matters

Sustainability is the cornerstone of Reco Cement’s corporate mission. We operate in an environmentally responsible manner, manufacturing products that have a minimal impact on the environment. We are fully committed to the development and widespread use of green construction materials.

Our additives are made primarily from waste byproducts generated by other industries, byproducts that would normally be placed into landfills. Additionally, the use of our additives facilitates the use of other waste byproducts generally placed in landfills such as fly ash and granulated slag.

Unlike Portland cement, the production of Reco Cement’s additives does not require the use of energy intensive kilns. These kilns are unnecessary because our additives serve as a partial replacement for Portland cement; they reduce the amount of carbon dioxide emissions generated through the production of Portland cement on a pound-for-pound basis.
