Aggregate Industries (AIUK), part of Holcim Group, announced a significant investment into a new import facility at the Port of Liverpool, UK. The investment is part of a long-term plan to support increased demand for cementitious products across the UK construction market. AIUK signed a 25-year lease to install 40,000 t storage capacity for cementitious products. The investment into deep-sea berths can save up to 25% of CO2 per tonne of imported materials thanks to increased vessel capacities. The project will help AIUK to maintain a continuous supply of lower carbon cementitious solutions throughout the North of England & Wales, with the addition of two surrounding berths and a two-chamber flat store at the portside.
