Our sustainability policy
HOW WE MAKE SURE WE'RE WORKING THE RIGHT WAY
CubeX Industries Ltd (‘’CubeX’’) produces Ultra-High-Performance Concrete (UHPC) in Britain using the highest quality, locally sourced materials. Taking an integrated approach to our business processes, we have adopted a single sustainability policy, which is regularly reviewed and updated.
Our visual concrete at an ecological glance
Due to its resistance, flexibility and low cost, concrete is globally used for many applications. As with any product, however, it has a process, and the production of concrete requires energy and water, resulting in high figures of CO2 generation. With the production of conventional concrete, there is a need to consider the strength of a structure and its service life. The use of Ultra-High-Performance-Concrete, however, can provide a long-lasting alternate and see a reduction in natural resources too.
With UHPC, the water/cement ratio is lower than in conventional concrete, which increases the mechanical properties and durability of a build. This increased strength, without the need for steel rebar, also brings a reduction in the risk associated with reinforcement corrosion and means it is less affected by aggressive agents. From a sustainability perspective, UHPC is found to have lower emissions and actually reduces the amount of concrete used. This, along with boosting the service life of a project by tenfold - UHPC is transforming conventional buildings into eco-schemes.
