Frankston Concrete Products Takes Strides Towards Sustainability: Increases Fly Ash Content in Concrete Mix to 30% Feb. 2024 –a leading player in the concrete precast manufacturing industry, is proud to announce a significant step towards environmental sustainability by increasing the percentage of fly ash in its concrete mix from 25% to an impressive 30%. This strategic move aims to reduce our carbon footprint without compromising the strength and quality of our products. Fly ash, a byproduct of coal combustion, is widely recognised for its potential to enhance the environmental performance of concrete. By incorporating a higher percentage of fly ash into our concrete mix, Frankston Concrete Products is actively contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions associated with traditional cement production. This commitment aligns with Frankston Concrete Products’ dedication to environmental responsibility and underscores our role as an industry leader in sustainable manufacturing practices. The decision to raise the fly ash content is a result of extensive testing and collaboration with our stakeholders. Key benefits of the increased fly ash content include:

There is always opportunity amidst challenge, and that is where the concrete industry is in the face of our climate crisis. A material synonymous with strength and durability, concrete carries an environmental burden due to its high embodied energy and carbon footprint. Frankston Concrete is committed to doing what we can to improve the environmental cost of our products by improving manufacturing methods of our precast concrete products, stormwater pits and reinforced concrete pipe (RCP).
The development and use of alternative binders, such as geopolymers, and supplementary cementitious materials, like fly ash and slag, offer opportunities to reduce the carbon footprint of concrete. These sustainable materials can replace traditional Portland cement while maintaining structural integrity. At FCP we have adjusted our mix to incorporate 25% of fly ash.
Embracing a circular economy approach, where concrete is recycled and repurposed at the end of its life, can significantly reduce embodied energy. All waste product at Frankston Concrete Products is collected for recycling. Crushed and reused, the recycled concrete is used as aggregate and base material in road and other constructions.
Frankston Concrete Products employs sustainable practices where possible.
