Cement’s the same but the packaging is greener

Read the full story at The Construction Index.

Tarmac says it is first major cement manufacturer in the UK to move to 50% recycled plastic in its packaging. The weatherproof bags are also recyclable.

Products manufactured at the company’s cement plant packaging facilities in Scotland and Wales are all now in production with the new bag, which has the same rip, tear and puncture resistance as the previous plastic packaging (which was only 30% recycled), as well as providing protection from rain and water.

Other sites currently producing a 30% recycled content bag are due to switch to the new packaging in the coming months.
