Sustainability: Recycled Raw Materials

Lignacite Ltd has a long history of commitment to the use of recycled and secondary aggregates in the production of its range of concrete blocks.

The original Lignacite block, first produced in 1947, used a proportion of graded wood particles as part of its constituents. This is still the case today.

There are social, economic and environmental benefits that can be attributed to the use of recycled and secondary aggregates (RSA), providing of course that the quality of the recycled and secondary aggregates is fit for purpose and meets our published specifications. These benefits are not only conferred on the manufacturer but also society at large.

Examples of the use of RSA’s by Lignacite include straw ash, recycled sand and graded wood particles. We are continually investing in new technology to allow more use of RSAs in our production.
