Firms are investing in new cement blending and import facilities in the United Kingdom in 2024
The construction industry is expected to experience an influx of new projects over the medium term, especially in London and South East England markets. To tap into this projected demand, firms are investing in new cement blending and import facilities in Tilbury.

Aggregate Industries, the subsidiary firm of Holcim, announced that the firm has commenced construction of a new cement blending plant and import hub in Essex. The facility features units designed to produce environmentally friendly cement components, such as ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBFS) and materials derived from construction and demolition waste (CDW). With five loading heads, the Tilbury site will enable Aggregate Industries to consistently supply both traditional and eco-friendly cementitious materials to London and the South East of England.

The new facility is part of the firm's strategy to further strengthen its position in the market, which is expected to grow at a steady pace over the next few years. Furthermore, the investment is also in line with the firm's sustainability goals and producing low carbon and circular building materials.

Heidelberg Materials, in February 2024, entered into a strategic partnership with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Worley. This is part of the firm's strategy to deliver carbon-capture technology at its facility.

Heidelberg Materials plans to construct a new carbon-capture and storage (CCS) facility that will capture up to 800,000 tonnes of CO2 annually and produce evoZero, the firm's net-zero carbon-captured cement, as soon as 2028. When operational, this facility will supply net-zero building materials for significant projects across the United Kingdom, aiding in the decarbonization of the construction industry and supporting its goal of becoming a net-zero business.

Going forward, in 2024, more cement manufacturers are expected to enter into such strategic collaborations. These strategic partnerships are expected to aid innovation in the sector over the medium term.
Housing and infrastructure construction projects to aid cement demand over the medium term
