Circular Economy

Pragmatic Environmental Stewardship

A pioneer of industrial ecology, Lafarge has a network of operations organized to convert construction project waste into fuel and raw materials for industry. Our approach regenerates natural resources while ensuring a net benefit for our customers, local communities and the environment.


Fill Importation

Responsible, Reliable and Economical

Manage your worksite space and be confident your excess soil is being reused appropriately with Lafarge’s inert fill importation offer.

Our commitment to responsible excess soil management is built on reliable receiving sites that provide material traceability and end-use transparency.

We work with you to demonstrate compliance from project planning through to regulatory process completion. Inert fill importation can improve project logistics and mitigate environmental risks.


Soil Solidification And Stabilization

Cost-Effective Brownfield Remediation

Soil solidification and stabilization (S/S) can be a viable alternative to excavation of contaminated material and transport to landfill. Redevelop and restore under utilized, environmentally-impacted properties with Lafarge’s expertise. S/S establishes a cement matrix that locks in contaminants. The chemical process further immobilizes pollutants by making them insoluble. We work with owners, developers and consultants providing technical support to evaluate the suitability and cost-saving potential of S/S.



High Quality Recycled Aggregates

Give a second life to demolition waste with Aggneo™, Lafarge’s range of high quality aggregates created from recycled concrete. Lafarge produces Aggneo™ from sources close to, or at, the worksite, and adheres to demanding quality control standards.

Aggneo™ is a sustainable alternative to virgin granular material. Using Aggneo™ preserves natural aggregate supplies and diverts construction waste from landfill sites.
