ERC-TECH Sustainability

ERC-TECH accedes to humanity’s great commitment that is covered by the code “Agenda 2030”, which ought to be performed worldwide.

The sustainable development agenda was officially endorsed by the UN Summit in New York on 25 September 2015 in the paper “Transforming our World:
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”, including Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

ERC-TECH makes a significant contribution to “Agenda 2030” points: 1, 8, 9, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 and 17.
ERC-TECH offers a comprehensive solution to sustainability worldwide available immediately for all participating entities.
  • Sustainability in construction design and development has to be considered in the earliest stages, since the potential environmental impacts are very significant. The economic benefits and impacts on social policy, integral components of sustainability, are also vast.
  • Approximately 35% of all waste comes from construction demolition, out of which 20% goes straight to the landfill from the construction site. A remaining 15% undergoes recycling with limited reuse, ending up in disposal sites and never reused.
  • Developers, construction contractors, manufacturers of construction materials, particularly concrete, architects and designers may significantly contribute to sustainability in the construction industry at any point.
  • Investors, public administration and governments are given space for new investment opportunities, designing difficult developments with comprehensive treatment of environmental burdens.
ERC-TECH brings a solution and technological know-how for reusing up to 100% of demolition waste converted into recycled materials with final use for production of diverse classes of concrete, concrete prefabricates and other construction products with a great added value, all implemented in accordance with strictest environmental requirements and positive social policy, summed up in the ERC-TECH Sustainability Strategy.


ERC-TECH technical innovation and know-how


The ercconcrete® products made using our technological design and know-how are fully recyclable and reusable after the end of their lifetime. This ensures an endless cycle of circulatory economy. (LCA – Life Cycle Assessment).

Energy Savings

Total energy savings on raw material resources, energies connected with production of construction materials and a CO2 saving of more than 70 billion USD a year with a worldwide application.


Our know-how handles comprehensive reuse of inert demolition waste, of which the world annually produces
approximately 6.9 billion tonnes, and the issue of elimination of old environmental burdens, which have not been dealt with since World War II.


Our technological design and know-how is capable of processing up to 100% of inert construction and demolition waste.


Our technological design and know-how has received numerous awards, meets parameters under EU standards.


The ercconcrete® products and concretes made using our technological design and know-how are significantly cheaper than products made of natural resources, and result in significant reduction in disposal costs.

Sustainability Strategy

ERC-TECH brings commercial/social/environmental advantages and aspects by means of its know-how

Perception of ERC-TECH Sustainability:

Commercial & economic advantages:

Reduction and progressive phaseout of payments for landfilling and disposal

Considerable cost reduction in construction industry

For final concrete products (concrete/prefabricates) the price level for recycled mixtures is 15-35% lower

Economic valuation of large quantities of construction and demolition waste deposited for decades and/or newly generated debris

Elimination of construction and demolition waste and concrete transport to/from construction sites if processed and produced right on the demolition/construction site

Savings due to material transport (if processed on site)

Energy savings, fuel savings, significant CO2 savings

Efficient use of brownfields, structures scheduled for demolition owned by governments and private entities

Direct financial savings for public administration, developers, investors, construction companies, manufacturers of construction elements, manufacturers of concrete and building owners

New production opportunities for manufacturers of concrete and prefabricated elements and concrete additives as part of “Green Line” sustainable construction

Approximation to the code “Plan 2030”

Structures and products with the brand LCA – Life Cycle Assesment

Buildings meeting LEED and BREAM marking requirements

Social responsibility:

General awareness of efficient reuse of recycled mixtures for the purposes of construction industry and production of construction elements

Clearance of old and unsatisfactory development

Possibility of reuse up to 100% of material for construction of new buildings/construction works for building permits and tenders for demolition and new construction

Reduction of housing acquisition costs in all regions

Potential new incubator for employment in all regions

Development of land with disused buildings scheduled for demolition for new industrial facilities, residential or public construction

Development of secondary construction industries with greater competitiveness on both a small and large scale

Environment and its protection:

Reduced extraction of new natural resources

Elimination of old sites with construction and demolition waste

Reduced need for new landfills

Plan for gradual elimination of landfills for construction and demolition waste, which leak hazardous substances into the environment by possible groundwater contamination and air pollution

LCA – Life Cycle Assessment – structures and products made under our know-how are reusable in the construction industry after their lifetime

End of landfilling of demolition waste with unlimited material base

Vast quantities of valuable materials are left in disposal sites and landfills today, which can be fully and efficiently reused

Closed loop of 100% recycling of construction material across the industry

Processing of construction and demolition waste on site significantly reduces the need for transport in both ways (C&DW stays on site and only unusable fragments are removed and stored outside cities)

Waste transport logistics and recycling will be reduced to a minimum, since concrete production can be located right on the construction site (depending on capacity)

Approximation to the code “Plan 2030”


ERC-TECH processing procedure involves reuse of old environmental burdens due to deposited C&DW, generated in the past, for concrete products and the construction industry

Environmental benefits consist in reduction of:

  • CO2 emissions and financial costs due to reuse of C&DW
  • measures preventing soil and groundwater pollution
  • logistics connected to storage (handling and transport) of demolition waste
  • landfilling of construction and demolition waste
  • energy connected to extraction of natural resources
  • energy connected to production of raw materials (natural aggregates) necessary for these production processes
Estimated savings worldwide:
> 600 million tonnes of CO2/year
> 120 million MWh of electricity a year on a global scale
