“One Bangkok” has announced to cooperate with “CPAC” to elevate the Thai construction industry to a higher level by operating “CPAC EV Mixer Truck” at the construction site for the first time in Thailand. Both companies foster their commitment to promote Green Construction and transport the concrete with clean energy innovation to comply with the Green Fleet policy. This collaboration reiterated their strong commitment to minimized environmental impact, tackle the climate change caused by the emission of greenhouse gas and raise the bar on construction industry standards in Thailand to international level.

Mr. Worawat Srisa-an, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of One Bangkok, stated, “One Bangkok is the largest holistically integrated district in the heart of Bangkok, developed as a movement to evolve Bangkok. We aim to set new standards of sustainable construction in Thailand and be a part of the local community to build the better future. One Bangkok, SCG and CPAC are strategic partners who shared vision to create long-term value through sustainable construction practices using circular economy principles with an ambition to achieve ‘zero waste to landfill’ goals. We previously signed four different agreements with SCG to demonstrate circular economy principles, which are Recycling lightweight concrete waste into Q-CON Sound Barrier used on the wall of the entrance tunnel, Holistic construction waste management and Turning food waste into fertilizer. The latest collaboration CPAC EV Mixer Truck at the site to minimize the environmental impact especially the construction dust and to save energy.”

Meanwhile, Mr. Nithi Patarachoke, President of SCG Cement-Building Materials, said that CPAC, a manufacturer of ready-mix concrete and precast concrete products, has announced to forge ahead the Green Construction strategy by aiming to enhance the standard of the Thai construction to create sustainability and the long-term growth. It also focuses on Environment, Social and Governance to comply with SCG’s ESG 4 Plus, which includes 1. Aim for Net Zero, 2. Go Green, 3. Lean approach to reduce inequality, and 4. Collaboration with fairness and transparency. Due to its commitment to minimize the impact from PM2.5 dust and the emission of greenhouse gases, CPAC has inaugurated CPAC EV Mixer Truck to transport concrete in line with the Green Fleet concept for the first time in the One Bangkok development.

“To emphasize the Green Construction strategy and our social and environmental responsibility, we have cooperated with One Bangkok to launch CPAC EV Mixer Truck to transport concrete at the One Bangkok’s site. We’ve shared the same vision and planned the development together. CPAC has been involved with the initial stage and used CPAC Low Heat Concrete, which emits low carbon, in the process of laying the building’s mat foundation. It’s our great honor to join this project and hope that our cooperation with “One Bangkok” will continue shaping the industry into the Green Construction in the future,” he said.

“CPAC EV Mixer Truck is the first step to move toward the carbon neutrality and Net Zero emission by 2050 per our goal. To replace diesel fuel, it is powered by electricity, which is considered a clean energy. If we compare them, the electric-powered mixer truck can reduce the amount of dust PM 2.5 and PM10 up to 45 grams per trip and cut down the greenhouse gas emissions up to 26.5 tons of carbon dioxide per year per vehicle, equivalent to grow 2,800 trees per year per vehicle. CPAC always gives importance to the society and the environment through its value chain, for example, operating the cement production plant with the Waste Heat Power Generator, and using the electric-based folk lift for the internal transport. We also produces Low Carbon Concrete as well as develops cement to reduce carbon emission, for example, we make Hydraulic cement to replace the Portland cement,” he added.

Comparing the electric-powered mixer truck to the diesel mixer truck, it discovers that 1,800 trips per one CPAC EV Mixer Truck can reduce the greenhouse gas emission up to 49,000 kg./(CO2), equivalent to planting 5210 trees. This is another strategy to achieve the goal in accordance with its environmental policy.
