Representing CEMEX's commitment to its Climate Action strategy, defining a global target of a 35% reduction of CO2 emissions per ton of cementitious products by 2030, the Vertua low carbon ready-mix concrete line offers a range of products - including Vertua Classic, Vertua Plus and Vertua Ultra — designed to achieve progressively greater reductions in CO2. Vertua Classic offers a reduction of 20 -30% compared to industry standard Portland-cement-based concrete.
Vertua Plus and Vertua Ultra will offer even greater reductions of CO2. The entire product line is expected to become available across the U.S. over the coming year. All Vertua products maintain the level of performance and durability that customers expect from CEMEX and can support the efforts of builders and contractors to earn more credit points toward LEED, Whole Building Life-Cycle Assessment and other green building certifications.
CEMEX“Since many customers are motivated to reduce the carbon footprint of their projects, we are delighted to offer Vertua Classic, which is suitable for a wide range of commercial and residential applications,” says Francisco Rivera, CEMEX USA Regional President, California Region. “Our Vertua products are uniquely designed to balance limited carbon specifications with our customers’ needs for high-quality performance and resilience.”
