The original concrete plant, located in Prague-Libuš, is said to have been in operation since the late 1990s and was closed in 2018 to undergo necessary reconstruction.

According to Cemex, the plant has now seen a complete renovation and has been adapted to the requirements of current modern construction technology.

The site can now process five types of cement and admixtures, including Cemex’s sustainable range of Vertua concretes, and is also prepared for the use of recycled aggregates.

These process the residual concrete, separating aggregates and sand that can then be reused says Cemex. In addition, the concrete batching plant is equipped with the most advanced filters and, as part of the refurbishment, the company adds that it has been clad with special sandwich panels to ensure quiet operation and environmental friendliness.

Ruediger Kuhn, VP of Materials Central Europe, Cemex commented, “Our plant in Libuš forms an important part of our operation in the Czech Republic, thanks to its interesting location in the wider centre of the capital and in the immediate vicinity of the planned construction of the Prague Metro D line. We are therefore very pleased to have this site reopened following a considerable investment.

“The development at this site confirms Cemex’s determination to offer its customers superior quality products while also meeting its sustainability objectives, supporting the circular economy and reducing emissions wherever possible.”
