New Alternative Raw Materials plant: Promsa at the forefront of the circular economy

The Alternative Raw Materials plant has the capacity to recover up to 100,000t per year and is located in Pallejà.

The new Alternative Raw Materials plant has a surface area of 3,276 m2 and will recover construction and demolition waste, as well as non-hazardous industrial waste: concrete waste, foundry sands, earth, slag, ashes, etc.

The plant is expected to process up to 100,000 tonnes of waste per year, thus preventing these materials from ending up in landfill and allowing them to be recovered in the manufacture of construction materials such as cement, concrete, mortar, etc. Its design uses the best technologies currently available to guarantee optimum treatment of the waste and minimisation of the environmental impact on the surroundings. The plant, located in Pallejà, consists of a prefabricated building constructed with materials from Precon, a Cementos Molins group company.

It has a production line of high quality recycled aggregates for the manufacture of sustainable products belonging to the Promsa Green line, which will cover the metropolitan area of Barcelona.

We continue to work on our commitment to reducing the carbon footprint of all our products and improving the data in the current Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs). The incorporation of this innovative raw material processing plant places Promsa as one of the concrete companies with the greatest manufacturing capacity for fresh cement-based products and recycled aggregates.
