CEMEX’s UAE concrete operation produces a full range of concretes from it locations in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Uniquely CEMEX has a range of low carbon concretes sold under the ReadyGREEN® product brand specifically designed for use in the UAE. Using Duracem®, a recycled product, CEMEX has created a high performing, high durability concrete that contains significantly less embodied carbon than traditional concretes.
CEMEX’s ReadyGREEN® concrete contributes to a multitude of Leed Points and Estidama credits, including as an example, but not limited to, Design for Durability, Regional Materials and Recycled Materials. ReadyGREEN® is one of our innovative readymix concrete products that drive sustainable and economic solutions.
Concrete is the construction material of choice in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The Company operates in the two main urban markets of Dubai, and the capital Abu Dhabi where the government continues to drive major projects as part of its Vision 2030. The company maintains a loyal and sophisticated customer base in both markets. Our grinding mill, while facilitating a vertically integrated operation, also allows us to sell cement and other cementitious products (e.g. GGBS and Eco-cem) to third parties, mainly in bulk to ready-mix concrete and precast manufacturers.
Through CEMEX's global Research & Development network, headquartered at our lab in Biel, Switzerland, we can offer our customers in the UAE, a portfolio of highly innovative concrete solutions, which thanks to our unrelenting focus on Sustainability have reduced impacts on natural resources and the environment. Through our grinding mill and global trade network, we are the only company in the UAE that can offer our clients a continuous secure supply of low-carbon cement.
