Lafarge France announces modernisation of Javel concrete plant

Print this page

France: LafargeHolcim subsidiary Lafarge France has announced a planned upgrade to its 120,000m3/yr Javel concrete plant involving a capacity reduction to 80,000m3/yr. It says that this corresponds to the significant reduction in the production capacity of the future Mirabeau power station and ’the expectations of residents and public authorities.’ The company has described the project as a ‘modernisation’ and from 2023 it will see at least 50% of its production become low or very-low carbon concrete products.

The producer said, “LafargeHolcim's approach by requesting the withdrawal of the existing authorisation thus consolidates its commitments vis-à-vis the stakeholders in the consultation process. The enforcement of the environmental controls announced by Paris Seine Normandy Ports (HAROPA) will of course be maintained and LafargeHolcim is fully in favour of maintaining the strictest controls on the part of the state services.”
