Golden Bay Cement EverSure™ (GP) and EverFast™ (HE) Cement is used in commercial, industrial and residential construction, including structural concrete, mortars, renders, grouts and cement-based products, and can also be used as a general binder for applications such as soil stabilisation. EverFast™ High Early Strength (HE) cement is the same product as EverSure™ but milled for longer to produce a finer cement for precast concrete products. Golden Bay Cement have been using wood chip and sawdust byproducts from the timber processing industry as a partial replacement and alternative for coal since January 2004. More recently, they have diverted construction and demolition wood from landfill by also using this waste as an alternative fuel source. The substitution rate is now approximately 30% of the kiln fuel used on an annual basis. The use of these lowers the overall CO2 emissions of GBC's manufacturing process. http://www.celsias.co.nz/article/golden-bay-cement-takes-renewable-energy-award/
