Print this page

Singapore/Sri Lanka: The Ceylon Institute of Builders has awarded Tokyo Super Portland Pozzolana Cement (PPC) with a 'Green Mark.'

The Green Mark is a Singaporean product label, accredited internationally by the Building Construction Authority (Singapore), the Green Building Council (Singapore), the Chartered Institute of Builders (UK), as well as locally by the Ceylon Institute of Builders, the Ministry of Environment, the Ministry of Construction and the Central Environmental Authority. Tokyo Super PPC is the only cement brand with a sustainable accreditation and is frequently recommended by sustainable building consultants as, 'The highest quality product, with minimal environmental impact, on the market.'

Tokyo Super PPC was given the green accreditation for the following reasons:

- Its local manufacturing is powered by carbon-neutral biomass energy that is locally-generated with the repurposing of agricultural waste;
- It is a renewable energy project in compliance with United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) standards and is awarded carbon credits annually;
- It uses coal fly ash from Norochcholai power plant, recycling locally-generated waste in a useful manner;
- It minimises the energy required in cement grinding by using fly ash;
- It minimises CO2 emissions by substituting clinker with non-limestone based material, thereby reducing the energy requirement for kilning;
- It has International Certification in Environmental Management Systems (ISO 14001) and Quality Management Systems (ISO 9000) and was the model from which local standards were set (SLS 1427);

Tokyo Super PPC, although less expensive than Ordinary Portland Cement, is not just the greener choice but also the stronger one. It offers as much as 10% higher strength after 98 days.
