Ambienta agrees the sale of Calucem
We are pleased to announce our agreement to sell Calucem, the #2 producer of Calcium Aluminate Cements (CAC) worldwide, to Cementos Molins, a global manufacturer of products and sustainable solutions for the construction sector. With this exit, Ambienta has proven once again that private equity returns and a sustainability lead strategy can go hand-in-hand.
Ambienta anticipated the latest sustainability trends in the construction sector, currently under pressure to reduce its environmental footprint, and developed Calucem into an industry-leading R&D champion, with a series of game-changing products in terms of CO2 reduction. When blended with ordinary cement, CAC enhances performance and reduces dramatically the amount of cement needed, sometimes replacing it entirely. Through its proprietary Environmental Impact Analysis, Ambienta estimates a saving of over 260 thousand tons of CO2 emissions in 2020 alone.
Calucem, founded in 1925, has customers in over 60 countries. Its management HQ and R&D centre are in Mannheim (Germany), its production facility in Pula (Croatia), sales companies in the US, Germany and Singapore, and a bauxite quarry in Turkey.
