Print this page

Ireland: Ecocem Materials’ turnover rose by 9.4% in 2017 to Euro79.4m from Euro72.6m in 2016. Pre-tax profit fell by 37.5% to Euro2.5m from Euro4m in 2016, as its costs rose by 12% to Euro76.5m from Euro68.6m.

Ecocem makes cement using waste from steel slag. The company has its head offices and a factory in Dublin, as well as businesses in the UK, France and the Netherlands. It is looking to expand into the US, although its subsidiary Orcem Americas has come up against stiff resistance from environmental groups in San Francisco.
