Production Center

Vallcarca

The Vallcarca quarry, located in the Garraf Massif, contains carbonate rock. The modern facility is safe for both the environment and its workers. All of its conveyor belts are covered, and both the screening and crushing zones are covered to avoid dust emissions. This, together with dust removal systems (wet collection in the primary phase, and dust traps in the secondary phase) ensure that Vallcarca is an environmentally-friendly plant.

The final products are used primarily to manufacture concrete, mortar and precast concrete. Given the Vallcarca plant's high production capacity and flexibility, it provided the bulk of the material used to build Barcelona's port and airport.
