Betolar announces first Indian low carbon concrete products made with Geoprime®

Betolar announced its first concrete products manufactured with Geoprime® for the Indian construction markets. Betolar’s Geoprime® is the next-generation, low carbon solution and a su­stainable alternative to cement. Geoprime® enables concrete manufacturers to create ce­ment-free concrete by effectively utilising industrial side streams such as fly ash and ground granulated blast furnace slag. Durability and strength for the manufactured concrete are comparable to cement-based products, yet it outperforms the traditional products with its significantly lower carbon footprint.

“We are happy to introduce our first products to our customers for the Indian markets. We have now moved from laboratory tests into the production phase and can show concretely how well this solution works. It is great to hear the feedback from the concrete industry in the region towards our sustainable solution. Decarbonisation of the concrete industry is a very current and important topic,” says Abhi­shek Bhattacharya, Managing Director, Beto­lar India Private Limited.

“We are satisfied that our operations in the India and Asian region are growing, and we have reached production stage with our first customers in India. It has only been a few months since we published these cooperations in India. We are moving forward according to our strategy in the region,” says Juha Pinomaa, Vice Presi­dent, Head of Asia, Betolar Plc.
