Golden Bay Cement’s Portland Manufacturing Plant is the only fully integrated cement manufacturing plant remaining in New Zealand. The Plant, located on the southern shore of the Whangarei Harbour in Northland, is a contemporary world class cement production facility, with a very long successful innovative history. The Portland Plant recently celebrated a century of cement production at the present site. Golden Bay Cement is firmly committed to supplying consistently reliable cement products for a wide range of applications, backed by top technical support, expert people and guaranteed delivery.
Golden Bay Cement strives to be better every day by reducing our environmental footprint and working proactively to respond to global sustainability issues. We have been using wood chip and sawdust by-products from the timber processing industry as a partial replacement for coal for over a decade. More recently we have diverted construction and demolition wood from landfill by also using this waste as a fuel source. We are currently in the process of enabling the use of end of life tyres in our kiln fuel mix known as Tyre Derived Fuel (TDF). This will further replace coal and allow Golden Bay Cement to be part of a sustainable solution to reduce tyres that are illegally dumped or sent to landfills within New Zealand.
In May 2019, we released an EN15804 compliant EPD for our EverSure™ GP Cement and EverFast™ HE Cement which is available in the ISv2.0 New Zealand Materials Calculator. Our EPD and lower emission cement may contribute towards achieving points in ISv2.0 Rso-6, Rso-7 and ISv1.2 Mat-1 and Mat-2.
Under the New Zealand Green Building Council’s Green Star rating system, up to three points can be awarded under MAT-7 Concrete and Aggregate, Criteria A, where it can be demonstrated that all concrete used has a reduced environmental impact.
