Environmental stewardship, community relationships, good governance, and the “Golden Rule” are key to how we do business at the Levy Group of Companies – and Green Circle Cement is a perfect example of that ethos.
Green Circle Cement (GCC) is manufactured from processing Levy Lite through a state of the art grinding mill, creating a fine powder. This powder, known as Green Circle Cement, is a direct replacement for Portland Cement. Three main ingredients are combined to create concrete – aggregates, water, and cement. Concrete produced with GCC is produced with 90% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than traditional concrete. GCC also enables the production of concrete that is both stronger and longer-lasting than traditional cement. GCC is used to build strong roads, bridges, buildings and water distribution systems, providing clean, green, sustainable infrastructure.
GCC is produced within an entirely enclosed process. The finished product coming out of GCC strengthens our infrastructure in an environmentally conscious way. In fact, the proposed Green Circle Cement facility offsets enough greenhouse gasses to fill Ford Field every three weeks for the life of the project. That’s a reduction of 240,000 tonnes of C02 per year!
State-of-the-art facilities and world-class technology are the Levy Standard. Green Circle Cement will be made safely right here in Michigan.
We protect the environment by using the latest technology at our facilities to decrease emissions, minimize waste, prevent pollution, and identify recycling and reuse opportunities. The Green Circle Cement facility features an entirely enclosed grinding process, limiting dust and particulate matter.
Taken together, this new facility will create full-time job opportunities right here in Detroit while supporting thousands of Michigan jobs in related industries.
