Company geobeton was established on the base of the more than fifteen years experience in the sphere of ready-mix concrete and rein- forced concrete production technology used in industrial and civil construction, as well as in the sphere of engineering and design. Our range of activities is not limited to decorative and architectural concrete products. We are trying to go beyond the existing boundaries and discover new edges of concrete. We put into life your ideas from interior design and landscaping to implementing architectural concepts of shops, offices, industrial and civil buildings and districts. Concrete recipes and applied technologies are elaborated by highly qualifued specialists in our own laboratory with advanced equipment and are based on the long-term research, experience and support of the leading international research institutes in the sphere of concrete technology. This enables us to produce sustainable high-quality products. We set an objective to open new horizons for a wide implementation of architectural and construction concrete by making products with properties outweighing those of ordinary port- land cement based concretes. At the same time we aim to take the maximum advantage of the modern, resource saving and waste free technologies while minimizing the environmental impact and reducing CO2 emissions. Géobéton is a new generation high-tech and eco-friendly material. It contains natural ingredients with geological origin. We aim to minimize the amount of portland cement clinker (result of calcination of lime, clay and other ingredients in cement kilns) in our products, it reduces CO2 emissions by up to 90% compared to the traditional technology based on portland cement. According to the research, one ton of CO2 is emitted into the atmosphere while producing one ton of ordinary portland cement (OPC), this leads to irreversible climate changes. Unlike OPC based concrete, géobéton has the following advantages: • higher physical mechanical properties and durability; • increased compressive and bending strength; • freeze/thaw resistance; • water resistance; • abrasion strength; • ability for ultimate use of recycled products and by-products; • significant decrease of CO2 emissions; • minimum use of non-renewable natural resources.
