Found in 2014, Hoffman Green designs, produces and distributes clinker-free cements which it claims have a carbon footprint 6 times lower than traditional cement.
From the second half of 2022, Hoffmann Green will supply Cemblend with its H-IONA, H-UKR and H-EVA clinker-free decarbonated cements for distribution to its customers in the UK and Ireland.
This exclusive distribution agreement with volume commitments initially runs until the end of 2023.
The company says it is a first step towards a licensing agreement which could see Cemblend build and operate a production unit similar to Hoffmann Green’s second production site (H2), and then produce and market Hoffmann cements in the UK.

Julien Blanchard and David Hoffmann, co-founders of Hoffmann Green Cement Technologies, said: “This first distribution contract in the UK is further proof of the attractiveness of our low-carbon solutions outside our borders.
“It is a first step in our cooperation process with Cemblend to build eco-responsible buildings across the Channel.”
Matthew Cunningham and Simon Boulter, directors at Cemblend, added: “The Hoffmann Green technologies enable us to think outside the box and beyond the traditional boundaries of construction.
“Hoffmann Green cements are highly decarbonised and offer high technical performance, allowing us to respond to the strong demand for eco-responsible materials in our region.”
