SCG International, CPAC and Shah Cement partner to provide ready-mix concrete consultancy service

Thailand-based SCG International and CPAC (The Concrete Products and Aggregate Co Ltd) have formed a partnership with Bangladesh’s Shah Cement Ready Mix Concrete to provide consultancy and development services for ready-mix concrete.

This collaboration aims to enhance production efficiency and develop innovative mix designs for ready-mix concrete that reduce cement usage. The initial phase will focus on production development aimed at reducing carbon dioxide emissions through cutting cement usage by 25 kg/cu m. 

In the future, there are plans to further improve production by exploring the use of alternative green raw materials such as fly ash, which will enhance production efficiency, reduce the amount of cement used, and maintain the compressive strength and quality of ready-mix concrete. This is also expected to position Shah Cement as a pioneering ready-mix concrete producer in Bangladesh, utilising waste materials such as fly ash as a sustainable substitute in its ready-mix concrete production, and thus reflecting the company’s commitment to achieving net zero by 2050.

Abhijit Datta, managing director of SCG International, said the signing of the agreement “emphasises our commitment to advancing the construction industry in Bangladesh and other markets through innovative solutions. The initial phase of this collaboration focuses on cost-saving in the production of ready-mix concrete by reducing cement usage, which can help decrease carbon dioxide emissions and be more environmentally friendly.”
