EcoMix® can reduce carbon intensity between 20-40% against the EC baseline using lower carbon cement made in NZ and supplementary additives that enhance durability of concrete. Firth has developed tools and expertise in designing mixes to support designers and contractors to realise lower carbon results for their project.
Firth EcoMix® can be used in a range of structural
applications. For more details on product suitability, talk
to our local Firth representative to assess the level of CO2
reduction achievable for your project.
