Production and sale of aggregates
Aggregates are an essential ingredient for all infrastructure worksites and are used both in sub-base layers and asphalt pavement. Eurovia has a worldwide network of 400 quarries that produce 86 million tonnes of aggregates annually and is the leader in France in this sector.
Eurovia Stone: all of Eurovia’s European quarries “under one roof”
With the creation of Eurovia Stone in 2008, Eurovia has consolidated its holdings in aggregate production in France and around the world to secure its supply and to ensure that it can produce as much as it consumes. The new entity brings together all of Eurovia's majority- and minority-owned quarries in Europe. Eurovia Stone's annual production is 70 million tonnes.
The Anvers Stone Terminal promotes alternative routes
The Antwerp Stone Terminal, built in 2005, allows for the unloading and storage of 72,000 tonnes of material in a single operation, at a pace of 5,000 tonnes per hour. These materials come from Scotland (granite) and Norway (sandstone) and are then conveyed by river, rail, or road transport to clients in Belgium, Germany, and France.
In the years ahead, the Ile-de-France/Haute-Normandie region, a major consumer of aggregate materials, will face a progressive reduction in naturally sourced materials. Despite the increasing volume of recycled materials, the region's needs cannot be met. Consequently, Eurovia is in the midst of developing alternative and has, for several years, also been relying on marine-based aggregate.
