Sustainable technology firm Recycl8 has completed its first commercial project in the ports sector, supporting Haventus with work on the Ardersier Port east of Inverness.

Recycl8 teamed up again with construction materials company Breedon Group to pour 52 cubic meters of its sustainable, lower carbon R8 Mix concrete for a weighbridge project at the port.

The project at the port used Recycl8’s R8 mix, which is made from recycled materials, in combination with the Breedon Balance range of products, known for its performance and commitment to sustainability.

Mark Gillespie, CEO of Recycl8, said: “The last 6 months have been particularly exciting for Recycl8 with our first commercial pours in the housing and industrial sectors and now our first port project, marking another milestone for us.

“We believe that our R8 mix technology is very much the future of the construction industry achieving sustainability goals and are delighted to be partnering once again with Breedon Group and also supporting Haventus, two companies who are very much aligned with our vision for what is possible in the industry, without compromising on performance.”

Craig Godsman of Breedon Group said: “Working in conjunction with Recycl8 and Haventus is a great platform to show how we can design and produce low carbon concrete as part of our Breedon Balance range. With Recycl8’s mix along with low carbon cement replacements, we are able to produce high quality concrete suitable for all kinds of environments with lowered CO2 values.

Recycl8 works in collaboration with the waste-to-energy and global construction industries to transform Incinerator Bottom Ash (IBA) normally destined for landfill into a high-performing, lower carbon concrete solution.
