Concretene signs development deal and secures £1.2 million in Government backing

Concretene has signed a development deal with piling and pre-cast concrete manufacturer Roger Bullivant to supply its graphene-enhanced admixture that reduces carbon in concrete.

Concretene has secured £1.2 million in Government backing for a project further testing the technology - and if successful, then commercial deliveries could start in late 2024.

 

The technology has showed promise in concrete mixes for standard precast applications. The £1.2 million funding for that pre-cast project is provided by Innovate UK under its SMART grant, which supports SMEs and industrial partners to develop potentially disruptive technologies.

Concretene has secured more than £2.4m in Government funding this year, with three awards announced in October.

Roger Bullivant is proposing to set up a pilot manufacturing plant for Concretene at its headquarters in south Derbyshire, which could ultimately help the wider rollout of the technology.

David Clement, managing director of Roger Bullivant, said: “Our precast foundation systems, manufactured using low-carbon concrete are an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional methods.
