SigmaRoc launches UK’s first cementless carbon concrete building block


SigmaRoc (SRC TO FOLLOW) announced the launch of ‘Greenbloc’, a new range that will be responsible for creating the UK’s first cementless ultra-low carbon concrete building block.

The group’s range of buy-and-build building materials will create a block with a significantly reduced carbon footprint compared to the traditional concrete building block which is widely used in the construction of real estate and infrastructure across all industries.

SigmaRoc claims that Greenbloc is completely cementless, “making it unique in the UK market”. On average, it offers a significant net reduction in incorporated CO2 (“eCO2”) of 77% per concrete block. Overall, Greenbloc’s average CO2e reduction “is equivalent to the CO2 emitted by the electricity consumption of an average household for four years,” he noted.

The product is produced by SigmaRoc’s PPG platform in its various production facilities. The company said the product has been “well received” by the market with keen interest from several major national building material dealers since the first trials in 2020.

The company has informed investors that more concrete building block sizes and specifications will be released in the coming weeks and months, expanding the Greenbloc lineup.

SigmaRoc shares have risen nearly 45% in value over the past three months, from 49.5. The stock’s shares were trading up 3.68% to 70.5p this morning after the news broke.
