ALFACrete

Green Earth concrete Products

Introducing:

ALFAcrete is new green concrete product of Al Falah.

ALFAcrete green concrete product are designed for maximum sustainability, using the most appropriate raw materials, plant and equipment, operational standards and delivery methodologies, working within a culture of continuous improvement to achieve and attain clients’ sustainability goals.

ALFAcrete primary ingredients are crushed aggregates, sand, water, cement, pozzolans, and chemical admixtures that produced to the highest standards and available in the region.

ALFAcrete designed to be a durable and sustainable concrete.

ALFAcrete is composed of crushed aggregates, sand, water, cement, chemical admixtures in addition to industrial waste by-products such as Fly Ash and/or Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag and /or other Pozzolanic material to constitute a portion of the cement as a replacement for cement to improve the durability and ultimate strength of concrete and also further reduce the CO2 embodied in concrete by as much as 50%.

Sustainable Development is the Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs

Alfalah Ready Mix was able to produce ALFAcrete utilizing the outcome benefits:

More efficient use of resources in concrete production, including re-cycled materials and byproducts from other industrial processes (such as GGBS and Pulverizes Fuel Ash);

Better re-use of waste and other secondary materials such as recycled water, recycled aggregates, and other pozzolanic material;

Lower reliance on quarrying material or sending construction and demolition waste to landfill by maximising the use of recycled material where practical

Development of low-energy, long-lasting yet flexible concrete plants;

ALFAcrete exhibits higher pumpability, higher long-term strength, and low heat of hydration, superior appearance and permeability. Its main limitation is slower early setting time but this is overcome but the higher ultimate strength of concrete.

ALFAcrete is produced in plants that operate under an integrated Management System for Quality, Environment, Occupational Health & Safety that is accredited and certified according to     ISO 9001:2000, ISO 14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:2007.

Alfalah Ready Mix was able to produce ALFAcrete utilizing the outcome benefits:

ALFAcrete is produced under strict quality control regime that adopts the latest international standards in the concrete industry and the supervision of highly trained engineers and technicians.

ALFAcrete is produced by fully automated plants that are certified to the NRMCA norms of the United States of America.

The outcome benefits of ALFAcrete are summarized in the following:

  1. Mix design Approved by MASDAR.
  2. Up to 70% cement reduction.
  3. Substantial reduction of CO2 Footprint.
  4. High workability.
  5. Increase in compressive and flexural strength.
  6. High quality.
  7. Low cost.

AL FALAH’s Mission is to provide quality products that meet or exceed customers’ expectations. To develop a professional work force that is committed and motivated. To enhance stakeholders’ value following an innovative approach.

AL FALAH’s Vision is to become the market leader in Readymix Concrete industry in UAE. To provide our customers with value for money, delivering profitable growth and enhancing stakeholders’ value. Translated for today’s market conditions and with the future firmly in perspective, this means more than providing excellent service and quality for AL FALAH clients in a traditional sense.

AL FALAH is inspired by, and committed to the highest ethical standards in the industry, the global leader in renewable energy technology and sustainability, MASDAR – which means – the Source (in Arabic).

AL FALAH is fully committed to environmental initiatives, particularly in relation to reduction in CO2  footprint, and other forms of pollution occurring in Readymix Concrete industry.

AL FALAH, as of January 2009, conducts manufacturing operations with minimal impact on social, economic, and environmental resources, whilst demonstrating at all times an understanding of latest environmental challenges and risks, ensuring an exemplary ecological footprint that is at the same time economically viable.

Al FALAH’s Current carbon footprint reduction initiatives cover personnel and training, raw materials, manufacturing equipment and delivery fleet, fuels, in addition to concrete mix design all of which form a significant part of our company-wide continuous improvement program towards greener environment.

AL FALAH tracks changes and innovations aiming at providing service and advice on technical and commercial viability, ensuring that the process of continuous improvement is of maximum benefit to all its valued clients.

Concrete is the second most commonly used material on earth; however, just one cubic metre of concrete generates approximately240kg of CO2. Since production began in January 2009, the plant has supplied more than 250,000cubic metres of concrete, representing a savings of approximately 29,250 metric tons of CO2 equivalent.

The ready-mix concrete used to build Masdar City contributes significantly to the city’s carbon footprint; however, a variety of steps have been taken to improve the sustainability of this concrete with regard to the sourcing of materials and innovative design mixes and systems. The green ready-mix concrete used in Masdar City’s construction is produced on site by Al Falah Ready Mix, using two automated batching plants that have a total capacity of 240 cubic metres per hour. Tested for strength and durability, even in Abu Dhabi’s extreme climate, this concrete is more economical alternatives, as well as a lifespan exceeding 75 years.
