Heidelberg Materials strengthens circular business in the U.S. Pacific Northwest
Heidelberg Materials announced that its North American subsidiary Lehigh Hanson has acquired JEV Recycling, Inc., a recycler of concrete and asphalt with a large facility in the U.S. Pacific Northwest. With the addition of the JEV business, Heidelberg Materials continues to strengthen its portfolio of circular materials in the Greater Seattle area to best serve the growing demand for sustainable construction materials. Heidelberg Materials once again demonstrates that its portfolio goes beyond cement and aggregates, with a focus on leading the change of the heavy building materials industry towards more sustainability.
Lehigh Hanson also recently added a new concrete recycling plant to its Cadman operations in Redmond, Washington. The new facility processes concrete rubble into recycled concrete aggregates. The circular product will be marketed under the brand name Revolve™ and will be used in ready mixed concrete and road building. This is a further step towards a circular economy and sustainable construction, which are central elements of the company’s strategy. Focus lies on the life cycle assessment of concrete – including the processing of demolished concrete and returning it to the construction cycle.
