Polymer Concrete

After water, concrete is the most widely used substance on the planet

It’s also been called ‘one of the most destructive materials on earth’. If the cement industry was a country it would be the third largest carbon emitter in the world

Estimated to be responsible for 4 - 8% of the world’s CO2; other impacts include acid rain and the pollution and depletion of drinking water

The global market for polymer concrete is estimated to be over $700m, growing at 8% CAGR

Nilo’s polymer concrete substitute is made with a 90% waste plastic mix:

  • Produces 60% fewer carbon emissions
  • Products made with it are twice as strong as those made with regular concrete
  • Can be produced at the same or lower cost
