A Government report analysing the value of waste has been well received by Forticrete a leading manufacturer of concrete construction products.

From Waste to Resource Productivity‘ takes a deep look at how waste can be treated as a valuable resource. Also highlighted how technology and new approaches are being used in order to get the most from waste in Britain.

Trade organisations to welcome the report include the Mineral Products Association (MPA) and the Environmental Services Association, with the former praising the report’s recognition of the valuable recycling and energy recovery.

For numerous years, concrete product manufacturers, such as Forticrete, have looked to progress by taking steps to respect the environment by improving waste management.

John Lambert, Managing Director of Forticrete, commented on how the company give their full backing to the viewpoint of having a greater focus on the lifetime of developments and how recycling and waste management will be achieved during their operation.

“As a supplier of concrete building products, the lifespan is a key element within the specification process. Whilst concrete products have not always been seen as the most sustainable choice, their durability means they are an ecological choice,” John said.

He expressed Forticrete’s commitment to sustainable manufacturing with the mantra of sustainability at the heart of its strategy and honoured the importance of the findings as it recognises the steps manufacturers are taking to reduce their respective impacts on society.

He implored businesses throughout the supply chain to work together so the report can be used by the Government in its policy-making process.”

Forticrete process waste is 100% recycled, by the company itself into the manufacturing process or externally processed and recycled into secondary aggregates or hardcore, with none of its process waste going to landfill.
