Ecocem Ireland is an independent, specialist producer of GGBS (Ground Granulated Blastfurnace Slag) cement. Ecocem is the registered trading name of Ecocem Ireland Limited.
Ecocem is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ecocem Materials Limited, an Irish company set up in 2001 to undertake industrial developments in Europe in the production and use of GGBS. Ecocem Materials Limited built its first GGBS production facility in The Netherlands in 2002 supplying the Dutch and Belgian markets. This facility is operated by Orcem BV, a sister company of Ecocem Ireland. The following year the Irish facility opened. A 3rd facility was opened at Fos in the South of France in 2009 and is operated by Ecocem France. The facilities in Ireland and Holland can produce approximately 350,000 tonnes of GGBS cement. The facility in France has a capacity to produce over 700,000 tonnes of GGBS.
Ecocem operates from a purpose-built GGBS grinding plant, the first such plant in Ireland, located in the Port of Dublin.
Ecocem has long term supply agreements in place for its raw material requirements ensuring that it will maintain supply of GGBS at all times and in accordance with National Standards applicable in Ireland.
Ecocem’s mission is to be the leader and centre of excellence in the production and use of GGBS as an economic and environmentally friendly cement in Ireland. This enables customers to produce the best quality concrete at a competitive cost while minimising the impact on the environment of cement production.
