David Ball wins award for low-carbon research

Specialist cementitious product manufacturer David Ball Group (DBG) is celebrating winning £30,000 in funding through the Shell Springboard awards to develop a low carbon cement-free concrete product.

DBG saw off competition from more than 120 other companies competing for the funding in the 8th annual Shell Springboard Awards, which aims to find the next big ideas in low carbon enterprise and innovation from within small and medium businesses. The company will use the prize money to carry out further research and development of its Cemfree product.

“We are delighted at this award and recognition at the Shell Springboard Awards that Cemfree is acknowledged as an innovative and viable solution to reducing the carbon legacy of the world’s most widely used construction material,” said DBG research and development manager Martin Liska.
