Many years of research and development work by Wagners has now culminated in Australia’s first truly low CO2 emission premixed concrete product. Branded Earth Friendly Concrete, or justEFC, it is a concrete that contains no ordinary Portland cement which is responsible for the carbon emission intensity of normal concrete. EFC is made from an eco-friendly alternative binder technology known as geopolymer, which produces 80 – 90 % less CO2 emissions than Portland cement.
