We are thrilled to share a great achievement by Spanos Group – we’ve been honored with the prestigious “Best Industrial Environmental Protection Project” award at the Manufacturing Excellence Awards 2023. This recognition is a testament to our unwavering dedication to revolutionizing industrial practices and prioritizing the environment. The award was accepted by our Technical Director, Eng. Panagiotis Charalampoglou.
At Spanos Group, our mission has always been to marry innovation with environmental responsibility. Today, we’re elated to share a groundbreaking project that epitomizes this mission: the ECOBATCH® concrete batching plant. Designed and manufactured by Spanos, this pioneering plant has earned the distinction of being the first concrete plant globally to obtain an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD).
Installed at The Ellinikon megaproject in Athens, Greece, for Herecles Group, member of HOLCIM, this project represents a paradigm shift in the construction industry. ECOBATCH® has set a new standard for sustainability that is characterized by increased productivity, lower energy consumption per produced m3 of ready-mix concrete, and the lowest carbon footprint in its design, construction and use stages.
Our team’s relentless commitment to excellence, innovation, and environmental protection has made this groundbreaking achievement possible. The ECOBATCH® concrete batching plant not only demonstrates our technical prowess but also our responsibility towards a greener, more sustainable future.
In addition, we extend our appreciation to our visionary partners, Herecles Group, member of HOLCIM, for sharing our commitment to sustainable construction practices and for their trust in our ability to deliver on this promise.
As we accept the “Best Industrial Environmental Protection Project” award, we acknowledge that our work is far from over. We are more inspired than ever to continue pushing the boundaries of what is possible in the construction industry. Sustainability is not just a goal for us; it’s our duty, our passion, and our future.
Thank you to everyone at Spanos Group for your dedication, and congratulations to our entire team for this well-deserved recognition.
