Spain: Cementos La Cruz has partnered with other building materials, construction and waste management companies and the Murcia Technological Centre for Construction to support a study by the Polytechnic University of Cartagena (UPCT). The Europa Press newspaper has reported that the research aims to develop geopolymeric concretes from industrial and urban waste, without the use of cement. The study is 80% financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

UPCT science and advanced construction technology research group coordinator Carlos Parra said, “Stopping the use of concrete is not the solution, as it is a relatively accessible material that allows access to housing and multiple services for millions of people around the world and is also a material with high resilience against natural catastrophes such as floods, hurricanes and resistant to the passage of time.”
