Hoffman Green signs cement licensing deal with US partners

by Mark Cantrell

A French company that makes clinker-free cements intended to aid construction’s decarbonisation has clinched a 30-year licensing agreement in the United States.

Hoffman Green Cement Technologies has signed the agreement with two US partners in a deal worth around some €2m. The business model incudes entrance fees, royalties, and the sale of Hoffmann premix.

Julien Blanchard and David Hoffmann, co-founders of Hoffmann Green Cement Technologies, said: “The signing of this key licensing agreement in the USA is the concrete result of the pre-agreement announced at the end of last year.

“We are delighted to join forces with two partners who share our vision of the construction sector and have both significant expertise and in-depth knowledge of the local ecosystem.

“After the licensing agreement signed in 2023 in Saudi Arabia, this step strengthens our international development strategy in two key states of the American construction sector, with the option of extending this agreement to the entire US territory by 2025.

“We thank our partner for its confidence and are delighted with this new licensing contract, which will contribute to the decarbonization of the US dynamic construction sector. The deployment of our plants and the commercialisation of our 0% cement clinker will play a key role in this transition.”

Olivier Ducimetière-Monod, a construction and property development entrepreneur in the United States, and co-associate of Hoffmann Green USA, added: “As part of the Inflation Reduction Act to fund the US energy transition, we are thrilled to partner with Hoffmann Green to drive the decarbonisation of the building industry and promote sustainable practices for future US construction projects. This licensing agreement is only the first step towards the future construction of Hoffmann plants throughout the United States.”

Francis Beauvallet, chief executive of Beauvallet Construction and co-associate of Hoffmann Green USA, added: “The signing of this contract represents a key French-American collaboration aimed at promoting innovative and sustainable solutions to decarbonise the construction sector in the United States. Thanks to our complementary expertise in construction and property development in the United States, we are committed to promoting and developing Hoffmann plants and their 0% cement clinker throughout the United States.”
