Ready Mix Concrete and the Environment

Buy Ready Mix Concrete in Kenya

The green revolution has taken a significant part of today’s public discussion, with the world in dire need of environmental conservation and eco-friendly products.

As such, Rhombus has put environmental sustainability at the heart of its operations and production as part of our commitment to secure the planet’s future. And that informs our dealership in ready mixed concrete instead of traditional manual mix materials.

We believe that the reasons outlined below, which we uphold sincerely, vindicate our products and operations.


How Ready-Mix Concrete Is Better for the Environment

1. Low Emission of Dust

Unlike manual mixing, where dust clouds are emitted into the atmosphere, the ready-mix manufacturing process reduces the amount of dust that goes into the air. High emission of dust increases acidification, which pollutes the water and affects crop farming productivity levels. But with ready-mix, the aggregate is prepared by the manufacturer and only presented to the site, ready for casting. That helps to reduce the production of dust at the construction site.

Another hazardous effect of dust is that it leads to smog, which makes road and air transportation quite challenging; sometimes leading to accidents.

2. Low Wastage

Another major shortcoming of manual mixing is the high wastage of water – a fast-diminishing resource that’s so crucial to life. Ready-mix concrete comes in handy since less water is used during manufacturing and casting.

Besides water, a lot of construction materials and aggregates go to waste during traditional mixing. These wastes are usually drained into the environment and water bodies, thus polluting the environment and endangering aquatic life.

All this waste is eliminated by using ready-mix concrete for construction.


3. Reduces Greenhouse Gas Emission

The emission of greenhouse gases is a leading cause of global warming and one of the main challenges facing construction companies in this era of green revolution. The ready-mix concrete manufacturing process mitigates carbon dioxide emissions, which goes a long way in preserving the environment.


As such, ready-mix concrete is your eco-friendly construction material. If you are concerned about your environment – as you should – please consider us for your next construction project.
