Highways England is trialling the use of cement-free concrete on its £1.5bn A14 Huntingdon to Cambridge improvement scheme.

Supplier Mick George Concrete has dedicated a 100-tonne silo at its Cambridgeshire based batching plant to Cemfree low-carbon sustainable cement.

Cemfree is an ultra-low-carbon cement produced by Cambridgeshire-based building materials company DB Group (Holdings) Ltd.

It can achieve embodied carbon savings of up to 80% when used to replace traditional cement-based products.

Highways England is trialling Cemfree product on a series of ancillary applications including kerb backing, drainage, mass fill and signage within a live section of the A14 scheme.

Mick George is exclusive concrete supplier to the A14 project and will be supplying up to 500m3 of Cemfree early in the new year.

Michael George, Managing Director at the Mick George Group, said: ‘”Due to an increased corporate emphasis on carbon reduction targets, there is undoubtedly more environmental consideration in construction build designs.

“We have a strong reputation for developing cutting-edge solutions and niche products, the introduction of Cemfree represented an opportunity to do both simultaneously.”
